A brief period of clouds this morning will give way to mostly
sunny skies before noon. Winds will be light, around 5 mph. A lake
breeze is forecast to move inland starting late this morning.
Since the winds over the land are a bit stronger than yesterday,
think the lake breeze will stay southeast of the burn today. Above
average temperatures expected today with highs in the upper 70s.
Humidity will not be as dry as Monday with minimums between 25 and
30 percent.
