SUMMARY: Cloud cover has increased overnight and will continue throughout most of the day, with a possibility of a stray shower or drizzle. A cold front will pass through in the evening, causing the cloud cover to decrease. Rain chances are low due to lack of forcing and moisture. Clear skies and calm winds are expected tomorrow after the front passes, with pleasant conditions lasting through the weekend.

Temperatures will cool down after the front passes. Mild temperatures and gusty south winds are expected tonight. Low clouds may bring drizzle or sprinkles, but measurable precipitation is unlikely. Overall, there were minor tweaks to the forecast.

These pleasant conditions will continue next week. By at least Tuesday, clouds will start to return and increase on Wednesday.
