Good evening. Some of us finally saw some sunshine. Some brightness

:04:23.:04:28.

towards the afternoon. A lot of the cloud lifting. Tonight initially

:04:29.:04:35.

clear skies with more cloud pushing into words don. A cooler night with

:04:36.:04:40.

temperatures down at five or six. Some early spells of sunshine

:04:41.:04:43.

tomorrow. More cloud pushing in and it could give some rain at times.
