Although a cold front passed early morning, the weather has been slow to clear out and turn totally dry behind it. With extra clouds around today, temperatures mainly made the mid- and upper 70s for highs. Lower humidity has been moving in on a northwest wind, and that will continue tonight. By tomorrow, it’s classic September brilliance.
