A cold front moved through the region, which has ushered in much cooler temperatures (compared to Monday). Highs today will be in the upper 50s and lower 60ss, which is actually just about where we should be this time of year. Breezy winds this morning will gradually abate this afternoon to around 10-15 mph. Some occasional gusts to 20 mph will be possible.
A seasonably cool night is in store as lows dip into the mid and upper 30s across most locations. The most sheltered and outlying spots may dip into the upper 20s and lower 30s tonight. Winds will be light and out of the southwest at 5-10 mph.
Mild and dry conditions will continue through the second half of the week and into the weekend with temperatures near or above normal. The main concern throughout this time will be the elevated or critical fire conditions on Wednesday and Saturday as warm, dry, and windy conditions occur.
