Shower Chances For the Next Week, Gloominess Ensues
Rain during the daylight hours today is unlikely but more will encroach on the area late tonight/overnight. Latest observations at the airport have us near a balmy 69ºF at 11AM under mostly cloudy skies. The dew point is only ~9ºF lower at 60ºF, meaning moisture return from the south is definitely in play. You will feel the southerly breeze today, too, gusting as high as 20-25 mph, based on latest HRRR model data.
