Other than the Monday part, and the pollen bit, today was a near-perfect day. Highs around 80 are a bit above normal — something that has been a little unusual of late. We coast into a stellar evening, and tomorrow is looking a lot like today. A chance of storms may present itself late Tuesday, but most likely after sunset if so.

Tomorrow (Tuesday): More in the way of classic springtime weather. Skies will be partly sunny, and the sunshine will be bright. Highs will reach the mid-70s to around 80. Winds will blow from the southeast, around 5 to 10 mph. Showers and thunderstorms may threaten after dark, but confidence on location and intensity is low. We are surrounded by higher chances of severe weather, so keep an eye here for any updates.
