Once June arrives, the heat of summer is never very far off. Today, however, was June at its best around the area as highs top out very near 80 with comfortable levels of humidity. A light northwest breeze present throughout the day will continue this evening.

Tonight: Mostly clear skies continue through the night. A switch in wind direction -- from northwesterly to southwesterly -- will begin to increase moisture levels, so temperatures won't fall too low. Expect a drop to the mid to upper 50s in the suburbs and the low 60s in the city.

Tomorrow: Tuesday will be warmer and a bit more humid than today. Mostly sunny skies will help temperatures rise into the mid 80s as a southwesterly wind becomes southerly and increases to 10-20 mph, with higher gusts, by afternoon. By late afternoon or evening, clouds enter the picture along with an increasing chance of showers or thunderstorms as we head into the overnight.
