It’s a relative humid, yet cloudy and windy day today. According to Weather.com, “a stray shower or thunderstorm is possible” and temperatures in Brooklyn will reach a high of 68 degrees Fahrenheit but mostly be in the low to mid-60s throughout the day, at least until the evening, when the expected rain will bring temps down to around 58 degrees and winds to 19 mph moving southwest.

Winds throughout the day are  “gusty,” moving south at 20 to 30 mph.

The sun will set at 7:40 p.m. and the moon begins its waxing gibbous phase.
