Forecast: A Mild End to the Week
Cooler over the weekend, damp at times
High temperatures peak well into the 60s today after rising slowly for five consecutive days. But we pay a price with a cooling trend and increasing winds over the weekend not to mention showery weather tonight and tomorrow night. Fortunately, Sunday should be on the dry side, albeit brisk.
Cloudy, chance of p.m. showers. Around 65. Clouds seize the day with evening showers a possibility. At least it will be warm and any late-day showers should be light and scattered. Expect high temperatures in the mid 60s except sunnier spots could potentially hit 70! Winds should be only about 10 mph, out of the southerly direction.
Overnight, showers (50% chance) may dot the area. Temperatures will only fall into the upper 40s. It will stay cloudy, even if the rain is neither widespread nor persistent.
Variably cloudy, p.m light rain. Mid 50s The day's weather will vary from morning to night. After breakfast, skies may partially clear, with temperatures reaching the mid 50s. However, foreboding music please, the evening will quickly cloud-over again. Rain may begin around dinner time.
Into the overnight, some wind-whipped rain could fall through the late night hours, although the steadiest rain will likely be south of the metro area. Temperatures will drop to near 40 downtown and into the mid 30s in the colder suburbs as winds pick up out of the northwest. Rain should end by dawn.
Keep reading for the forecast through early next week.
Clearing, windy and cool. Upper 40s. Winds will be active from the northwest, at nearly 20 mph. But those breezes will help us dry out during the morning. Temperatures will hopefully break out of the 40s, and hit 50 in the metro area - although I wouldn't count on it. Overnight, most locations will dip just below freezing.
A LOOK AHEAD
Sunny and mild conditions open our week on Monday. Bright mid 50s appear likely with not much wind.
Clouds may increase Tuesday, but it will be mild. Temperatures near 60 should raise your spirits, especially since showers may not hit until after rush hour that night. Fingers crossed!
