PM Update: Cool and mostly gloomy persists
More tomorrow, but 70s and sun by Thursday
We've warmed slightly since yesterday, but today's extra wind might make it a moot point if you're outside for long and don't manage to find yourself in a ray of sunshine. Lots of clouds have loitered across the area today keeping temperatures from rising much further than near 60 and into the lower 60s. After the last few days, including chill last night that was the coldest across the area since early May, I know I am ready for at least a few days of sun with highs in the 70s!
Through Tonight: There could be a light shower or sprinkle into evening one or two places, then variably cloudy overnight. Temperatures should run pretty close to last night, so another chilly one is ahead. Look for lows mainly in the lower 40s for the suburbs to the upper 40s or near 50 downtown. National just missed the 40s last night, so if it makes it tonight it will be the first time since May 11.
Tomorrow (Wednesday): We're still under the influence of a large upper-level low pressure system tomorrow, but it will finally begin to depart. It should be rather similar to today, with highs perhaps a degree or two warmer -- the low-or-mid 60s many spots, under partly-to-mostly cloudy skies. There's also the risk of an afternoon shower or two.
Fall foliage: On days like this it's hard not to think that the cool season is here, and winter snow can't be far off. With cool weather comes autumn color. It's still pretty early, but much of the area is now seeing low color. Some leaf drop is also evident, mainly west of here in higher elevations. Peak color is still a few weeks off for the area, though things should start getting vibrant across the western highlands in the next 10 days or so. Monitor color change here.
