Keep it in the car, just in case. There's a spotty shower or thunder chance late tonight and into Thursday.

Yes, very cool nights and early mornings will keep coming. Kids at the bus stop will want a jacket, but because it warms up later in the afternoon, they may be tempted to leave it at school.

Updated: 02/10/2016 - From camping to curiosity, you may want to be able to tell the time of day by looking at the sun.
