"A noticeably cooler day is in store despite plenty of sunshine on Wednesday," Senior Meteorologist Carl Erickson said. "Northerly breezes will put an extra chill in the air."

The winds will gradually taper off toward Wednesday evening, but a warm jacket or sweatshirt may come in handy if you are heading out for a walk or dinner.

Dry weather will prevail into Thursday and Friday as highs slowly rebound into the lower 60s.
