PM Update: Cooling trend begins tomorrow

By Ian Livingston

Mostly cloudy Tuesday, showers late?

After yesterday's spectacular day we were treated to another very fine one today. Increasing high clouds this afternoon have reduced the amount of sun making it through but highs mostly in the low 70s are still very warm for November. Days like this will be few and far between the next several months, so spend some time enjoying the rest of it if possible!

Through Tonight: The blanket of high clouds that arrived this afternoon remains through the night. Lows should range from the mid-40s in the coolest spots to the low 50s downtown.

Tomorrow (Tuesday): Tuesday is looking rather cloudy and a touch closer to normal temperature-wise, though still mild. Look for highs to reach the middle -- maybe a few upper -- 60s. Some moisture associated with Ida's remnants may make it here late, but that's still to be determined, so I'll stick with a slight chance of showers heading into evening.

@capitalclimate

Those highs that were earlier reported were prelims based on the hourlies...as you're well aware, that officials get updated later...next time we'll be sure to qualify
