  • It’s a chilly Tuesday morning but not "as" cold as yesterday - this morning, we’re starting out in the low/mid 40°s; instead of Monday’s mid/upper 30°s! Today, we’re looking at partly cloudy skies, perhaps a spotty shower or two later in the day, a bit warmer - a high in the upper 60°s/lower 70°s. Overnight, some lingering clouds, a low of 48°; tomorrow, mostly sunny - light northerly winds - cool, a high of 66°.
