Today’s Forecast:
We'll start with areas of fog and clouds east of the mountains this morning, but most of the day actually looks pretty nice!

Sunshine should punch through the clouds later in the morning, but clouds will build back in over the afternoon. Temperatures look great today with highs warming to the 70s in the plains.

Despite the overcast afternoon, we should stay dry across most of the region.
