Today was a fairly typical late-October day around here. Cool morning lows in the 30s and 40s rose to highs generally in the mid-60s this afternoon. Clouds are now increasing and will continue to do so heading through evening and into the overnight. Rain chances will probably hold off until after most are asleep. So if you're eager to get anything done outdoors without any weather worries, you have the rest of the day on your side.

Through Tonight: Clouds continue to increase this evening before lowering and thickening overnight, but rain should stay away through evening. A slight chance of rain after midnight turns into a better chance of isolated to scattered showers by around sunrise, with the best chances over eastern parts of the area. Lows range from the mid-40s in the cold spots to around 50 in the city.

Tomorrow (Tuesday): A small storm system off the coast brings a chance of isolated to scattered rain showers along with some drizzle in the morning, but probably nothing terribly intense. Winds from the north and northeast will keep things damp and cool -- highs probably only in the mid-and-upper 50s. There may be a lull in any shower activity during the midday into afternoon before more significant rain coming from the southwest threatens late in the day and into tomorrow night.

Well played CWG, you said rain tonight circa 1am...1:10 and I hear the first drops, 1:11 and a nice down pour.
