Tomorrow (Tuesday):

Tomorrow morning will be cloudy and chilly with temperatures rising slowly until mid-morning. As the clouds dissipate partially, temperatures will rise and another beautiful spring day will appear. The high temperature will be around 62 degrees and winds will continue to be light and variable.  

Tomorrow Night:
