temperatures reached the upper half of the 50s, while elsewhere the
lower 50s were reached.

morning, light rain was limited to the eastern half of the area,
with a temporary lull over the western half. Temperatures remained
in the upper half of the 40s to near 50, rising overnight by a
couple of degrees in some cases.
