Cooler but seasonal air filters in overnight and tomorrow

We tacked on another brilliant day today after yesterday's warm and beautiful one. Temperatures in most locations reached right around 70 for highs. A cold front that pushed through this morning will put an end to the mini-warm streak and knock us back down closer to average the next few days.

Through Tonight: We'll see variable clouds overnight -- mostly clear this evening, trending partly cloudy later. Temperatures falling through the 50s after sunset drop to lows mainly near 40 in the suburbs and into the mid-40s for the city. Winds will be light from the north and northeast.

Tomorrow (Tuesday): Partly to mostly sunny skies stick around Tuesday, but a better established flow off the ocean will keep temperatures from rising as much as recently. Highs should range from 55 to 60. By evening or overnight we may see clouds increase thanks in part to a continued light breeze from the east and northeast around 5-10 mph.

Ocean treasures: The remnants of Ida that helped spawn our large and slow-moving storm system last week caused a lot of coastal erosion, but not everyone is upset about that. Treasure hunters with metal detectors are often out in force after a large storm hits the coast because numerous offshore shipwrecks can send their goodies ashore while waves are actively pummeling the coast.
