More breaks in the cloud cover than recent days was a bit of a change-up. We are just getting started on that angle. Highs in the mid- and upper 60s were again somewhat on the lower end of the forecast thanks to relatively abundant cloud cover, despite those breaks. Behind a cold front, temperatures aren’t too much different tomorrow — except when it comes to the vanishing humidity.

Tomorrow (Thursday): The clearer times we’ve been waiting for finally arrive. In fact, skies should be mainly sunny as readings make the mid-60s for highs. The main downside is a feisty northerly breeze around 10 mph, with gusts near 25 mph.
