Wednesday will see clouds and showers once again, with rainfall beginning to taper off as the day progresses.  Wednesday’s highs will be in the mid 70s.

The sun will return on Thursday as a few clouds linger.  Thursday’s highs will be mostly in the mid 70s.

Friday will feature blue skies and plenty of sun.  Friday’s highs will be in the mid to upper 70s.
