The sun should come out this afternoon but it will still feel cool because of the wind. Tomorrow will be startling beautiful with bright sun, nearly calm wind and moderate temperatures in the mid 50 in the afternoon. Actually, tomorrow afternoon will be the start of a period of weather that is referred to as Indian Summer. From Wikipedia:
Indian summer is a period of unseasonably warm, dry weather that sometimes occurs in autumn in the Northern Hemisphere. The US National Weather Service defines this as weather conditions that are sunny and clear with above normal temperatures, occurring late-September to mid-November. It is usually described as occurring after a killing frost.
