Forecast: A Bright Sunshiny Saturday
After yesterday's record-breaking rains, today's sunshine is a welcome sight. Nice weather repeats Sunday, notwithstanding an increase in clouds. High temperatures should climb to 50 or higher both weekend days and mild weather will continue into the first half of next week.
Mostly sunny. 48-53. Behind yesterday's storm, a big area of high pressure will build in, clearing our skies. After a seasonably chilly start to the day (freezing downtown, upper 20s north and west), temperatures will rise about 20 degrees to give pretty much everyone high temperatures around 50. Clear skies and calm winds overnight, with lows from the upper 20s in the colder suburbs to the low 30s downtown.
Keep reading for a look ahead to the forecast for Sunday and the beginning of next week...
A few clouds, warmer by a nose. 50-55. As the high pressure responsible for Saturday's sunny skies moves offshore, we'll experience a gradual increase in clouds. Nonetheless, it will remain dry and we should add two to three degrees to Saturday's high temperatures area-wide.
A LOOK AHEAD
Cloudy skies on Monday will likely hold high temperatures below 50. A warm front passing through the region could produce a few showers in the afternoon and evening. Tuesday has the potential to be quite warm (behind the warm front) as highs reach 60-65. Showers are likely Tuesday night into Wednesday morning as a cold front comes through. Dry conditions return Wednesday afternoon through Friday, with high temperatures cooling to the 40s.
