The main thing you will notice about the weather today will be the cloudy skies and cooler temperatures. Under those clouds, we could see a few showers at any time of day.

Winds today will come from the north at about 10 mph.

We'll still have plenty of cloud cover tonight and it will be a bit cooler with lows in the mid 50s. By tomorrow, the cloud cover will be decreasing as afternoon highs rebound into the mid to upper 70s. Then, by the weekend we'll have mainly sunny skies with highs in the lower 80s.
