It felt quite autumnal out there today as breezes mixed with temperatures in the 60s much of the time. Readings topped out right around 70 this afternoon, which is a handful below normal for the date, a streak we’ll continue in the days to come. As we await Ian’s remnants, our weather remains rather tranquil. The calm before the storm kind of stuff.

Tomorrow (Thursday): Clouds continue to increase a bit tomorrow. They continue to be mainly high-level, which means some sun shines through. High temperatures rise near or a little above 70. Winds are out of the north around 10 to 15 mph, with higher gusts.
