Once the rain ended midday, we ended up with a relatively decent afternoon. Despite the mild conditions, sunshine was minimal, and that remains the story into the near future. Our drier stretch lasts about 24 to 30 hours. Better than more rain, right?

Tomorrow (Wednesday): Another storm is headed east across the country. The front that passed today comes back north, keeping us in the clouds. Odds of rain also grow by sunset. Anything during the day and into the evening should be light, but it could mess with the commute home. Highs are within a few degrees of 50. Winds are variable, starting the day coming from the northwest but switching toward the south with time.
