Warmer, still beautiful on Tuesday

Following scattered storminess of yesterday, incredible weather for August settled back into the area today as highs now reach the upper 70s and low 80s. Blue skies, along with a few puffy cumulus clouds, will continue through the rest of the afternoon, and so will a sometimes gusty breeze from the northwest. Another fantastic evening for outdoor activities is on the way.

Tonight: Any clouds around during the day will diminish with the loss of what little daytime heating we saw this afternoon. Expect clear conditions to dominate the night along with temperatures falling into the mid 50s for the suburbs and low-to-mid 60s in the city.

Tomorrow: If you enjoyed today you are likely to feel the same about tomorrow. Temperatures should rise a few degrees higher, but skies will remain blue, and low humidity will continue. Expect readings to top out in the mid 80s in most places, with a few upper 80s possible, especially in urban centers. Winds will slacken compared to today, but will continue from the northwest.
