PM Update: Delightful autumn conditions continue
Above-average p.m. temps through at least Thursday
After another chilly start that included some spots of frost, mostly sunny skies delivered a beautiful day and a mild afternoon. While temperature rises on the order of 30 degrees or more -- to highs in the upper 60s and lower 70s -- might make it somewhat difficult to dress properly, there's not too much to complain about with these fine conditions. Since we were robbed of some typically nice October weather last week, we'll take all we can get this week.
Through Tonight: As mostly clear skies of the day persist into evening, most spots will be heading into the upper 50s around and just after sunset. Even though readings will tumble overnight, we start off higher this afternoon, so they will be a little warmer than recently. Lows should range from near 40 in the coldest spots to near 50 downtown.
Tomorrow (Wednesday): The middle of the work week brings more in the way of sunshine and pleasant weather. Little more than a stray cloud or two should spread across the sky during the day. Cool morning lows quickly rise to high temperatures ranging from around 70 toward the mid-70s -- above average for this time of year.

Tropics: Yesterday I mentioned a disturbance in the Western Caribbean that needed monitoring for possible tropical development. Since then, it has been classified an invest by the National Hurricane Center. The environment is currently not terribly favorable thanks to moderate to high wind shear impacting the system. Most models are not doing much with the system and there is some chance it will just drift into Central America. Weather Underground's Jeff Masters explored the situation in depth this morning.
