By Ian Livingston

If you don't mind some wind -- which was lighter than over the weekend but still gusty -- today was a fairly nice one around the area. Otherwise, lots of sunshine has visited the area along with temperatures in the mid-60s that are back closer to seasonal norms. Winds of this afternoon should subside heading into evening, and after another cool night, tomorrow should be quite beautiful.

Through Tonight: Temperatures fall to near 60 around sunset and winds begin to subside. Last night, winds kept temperatures up a smidge. Tonight, winds should ease enough for readings to fall to similar levels despite a slightly warmer air mass. Lows end up near 40 in the suburbs to the mid-40s downtown.

Tomorrow (Tuesday): Look for sunny skies to stay around on Tuesday with less of a breeze than today. Another cool morning gives way to afternoon temperatures rising to the upper 60s or near 70. Northwest winds around 5 mph will be little issue.

Darn it!!!

We seem to be threatened with the dreaded weekend washout because someone is dropping Saturday's high temperature into the sixties!!! Let's hope this darned low passes off to our west and north, and we can get the warm sector of this system. That way we can pass the washout off into New York/New England where it belongs, assuming of course that they don't get another round of flooding from this system.

BTW is that a possible tropical/subtropical system we could be seeing in the Bay of Campeche on Sunday's and Monday's preliminary charts???

Seems a bit early for the Caribbean. We have yet to see our first Atlantic tropical wave on the ITCZ; it should be up to another month before that happens.
