The weather, currently.

Overcast into the early afternoon, then eventually the sun emerges

Don’t let today’s clouds fool you. It’s starting to get hotter, so while you might want to revel in an overcast day, prepare for it to be a bit warmer than yesterday. I still really enjoy highs at 85°F, and without the intense sunshine beaming down on you, it should be a great time to pick up all those early pandemic hobbies you’ve long since abandoned. Lace up the roller skates, check on your tomato plants, make another DIY wind chime for the tree in front of your window. The sun should poke out around 2 PM, and that’s about when the heat will start winding down and set you up for a mostly clear evening. Lows will rest in the mid-60s.
