As long as we discount the pollen, today was about as nice as it gets. Highs made the low 70s, humidity was nonexistent, and most of the day was rather sunny. It is true that we have a small chance of precipitation tonight. It is not true that it will mess with another gorgeous one tomorrow.

Through tonight: Clouds that started to show up this afternoon continue to fill our skies into the night. Showers may blow by late night. If so, they are isolated and don’t do a whole lot. Lows range from the upper 40s to lower 50s.

Tomorrow (Tuesday): A few clouds may linger into the early morning from the overnight showers. If so, they’re out of here quickly. It’s another beautiful one, with highs in the mid-70s.

Swirly: The nice weather here today is partly thanks to a stalled pattern featuring a big old low-pressure system off the Canadian Maritimes. It’s a beaut!
