The visible satellite imagery shows clear skies over the state this morning. This image has been excluded from today’s post.
The surface observations (from the SPC Mesoscale Analysis Map) show mild temperatures and moderate humidity (based on the surface dewpoint depressions). The skies are clear and the winds are calm.
The pressure chart (from the SPC Mesoscale Analysis Map) shows that we are under high pressure with no strong pressure gradients. The RAP shows that this trend will continue for at least the six hours.

The day will be cool, only reaching into the mid-40s F, then cooling off into the upper-20s F this evening.
Today will be sunny and perhaps dry out a little. We may go outside later today.
