Despite the stubborn morning cloudiness today, sunshine eventually helped boost temperatures to highs near and above 70. It ended up being quite a nice afternoon locally as skies cleared, other than some high clouds filtering in late. Clouds and some fog will build back in tonight, and a cold front is on the way for Tuesday. Although a cool-down looms, we stay mild through tomorrow.

Tomorrow (Tuesday): Some fog may linger into the morning. Any sunshine is diminished with time. We could see some showers around as soon as the midday, but the odds favor the afternoon into early evening. It will be spotty, with some locations seeing a tenth or two of an inch and others little. Highs will range from near 70 to the low-70s. Winds will be out of the north and northwest, around 10 mph, with gusts around 20 mph.
