High pressure will build in Wednesday bringing partly sunny with highs in the lower 60s and light and variable winds.

Yesterday morning brought our first frost of the season—more or less right on schedule—and the grasses out by the volleyball court had a nice coating of crystals. More frost in the forecast!
