Expect more clouds than sun over the next few days. The humidity is also making a return with more chances of rain. 

Tuesday:
Ares of Light Rain, Increasing Humidity
Highs: Near 80°
Wind: S 5-10 mph
Tonight:
Light Rain Possible
Lows: Near 70°
Wind: S 5-10 mph
Wednesday:
Limited Sun, A Few Showers
Highs: Lower 80s
Wind: S 10 mph

The sunny and comfortable high pressure system of the past few days is moving offshore, and this will combine with a stalling warm front to open the door for increasing humidity and warming temperatures. This will translate into an unsettled weather pattern, so expect more clouds than sun and daily rain chances for the rest of the week. Temperatures will warm a bit and spike in the upper 80s by Friday and Saturday, which is near the seasonal average. In terms of rain, expect intermittent showers this morning and rain at some point every day through Saturday with a few embedded storms. Most of the rain action should be light to moderate. A cold front is expected to sweep away some of the humidity and clouds by Sunday.
