    For the rest of today, we will see mostly sunny skies with no chance for any rain. You will need a jacket as you head out the door because temperatures will still not warm up very much. Highs this afternoon are only going to be in the mid 60s. After sunset, we will quickly fall into the 50s, eventually back into the 40s again. By tonight, we will have clear skies with rain chances down to zero. Temperatures will cool down to the low to mid 40s tonight.
