The few moments of sunshine this morning have given way to building black bottom cumulus and threat for a few afternoon showers.

High temps will be climbing into the lwr-mid 60′s inland this afternoon, but cooler winds off the water with clouds will make it awfully cool at the coast keeping temps in the 50′s.
