PM Update: More Light Rain Before Sun Returns
Clouds to break by Tuesday afternoon; Warm Wednesday
Cloud fans remain happy as the sun stayed away for another day, but that's all about to come to en end, even if only temporarily. With a continued flow off the ocean, temperatures struggled to near 50 for highs in most spots. That's a step up from the past two days if only a small one. Also like the weekend, we find ourselves on the northern fringe of storminess off to our south. Rain showers now entering the area should become more widespread by 6-8 p.m.
Tonight: Light rain persists through the evening and till around or just after midnight in many places. Most of the rain will be light, but some embedded heavier showers are possible. The positive side of clouds, moisture and east winds this time of year is that nighttime lows are fairly uniform and easier to forecast. Look for lows in the upper 30s to near 40.
Tomorrow (Tuesday): Clouds and some fog/drizzle greet us when we wake up, with maybe a shower still over far eastern portions of the area. But by early afternoon, we should see something we haven't seen much of lately -- the sun. Temperatures are a little tricky depending on the timing of sunshine. It appears highs should get into the low-to-mid 50s, and maybe a bit higher if sun breaks out earlier in the day.
