This is my kind an autumn day -- lots of sun, somewhat mild temperatures and no major cold snaps on the immediate horizon to think about. Temperatures near 60 and into the lower 60s are back a little bit above average for this time of year, and compared to the chill of recent days, it feels pretty nice despite a northwest wind gusting as high as 25-30 mph this afternoon.

Through Tonight: We start the evening mainly clear, but some clouds continue to work south overnight from the storm impacting New England. Best odds for the most in the way of cloud cover should be over north and east parts of the area, but everyone may go partly cloudy for a time. Lows fall to the mid-30s in the coldest suburbs to the lower 40s downtown. Northwest winds continue around 10 or 15 mph with higher gusts.

Tomorrow (Tuesday): Another decent fall day is ahead. Overall, skies should be mostly clear, but periods of partly cloudy are possible during the afternoon. Expect upper 50s and lower 60s for highs as a wind from the northwest persists around 5 to 10 mph with higher gusts.

UK storm: A storm impacted the United Kingdom today -- the first major one of the cool season. Following unseasonably warm weather last week, much of the region is facing heavy rain, strong winds and higher elevation snow thanks to the low pressure system that moved in from the north. Temperatures in London today only rose to the mid-40s and wind gusts as high as 60-70 mph were anticipated along the western UK coastline.
