A passing shower or storm is possible tonight, but mainly off to our north and west. Temperatures will have a tough time falling off again — only the mid 70’s or so.

Tomorrow will feature a passing cold front with blustery conditions in its wake. There’s still enough support for a warm day, so expect highs to fall only a little short of today’s — 85-90°.
