We’ll finally see a welcomed return to drier, quieter weather starting today and lasting through the middle of next week as surface high pressure builds down from Canada. Temperatures are expected to be near seasonable—maybe a degree or two below—with lower humidity levles. The next chance for more widespread showers and storms will arrive by next Thursday.

Tonight should be mostly clear until midnight, then become partly cloudy with a slight chance of showers after midnight along the Canadian border. Lows will be around 60 with southwest winds around 10 mph. Chance of rain is 20%.

About Today’s Photo:
Purple flowering raspberry (Rubus odoratus) is in bloom along roadways and in shady locations. This particular bush sported some deep purple flowers. This member of the Rubus family produces large, flattish berries that aren’t particularly flavorful, but worth a try if you find ’em!
