While there is still a possibility of showers today, it is down from a 90 percent chance to a 40 percent chance, with partial sunshine and a high near 85 now anticipated for the first official day of summer. Tonight is predicted to remain mostly cloudy with a low of 71 and a 30 percent chance of rain and thunderstorms mainly taking place before 8 p.m., NWS said. If you thought this was a somewhat gloomy start for the summer, just hold on until Monday, as sunny blue skies and a high of 87 are waiting for the city after the weekend.
