Forecast: From Dry to Wet to Windy
Talk about good timing: sandwiched between last night's rain and more rain tonight, much of today will be splendid. Tomorrow we dry out just in time for most of the daylight hours again, although it will be windy and a bit chilly.
Partly sunny, near 60. Call it the calm between the storms. Weak high pressure will move in long enough to produce a good deal of sunshine, boosting temperatures to near 60 despite a cool breeze from the north.
Clouds increase during the evening hours with rain likely after about 7 or 8 p.m. About half an inch of rain will fall overnight with low temperatures in the upper 30s in the colder suburbs and low 40s downtown.
Keep reading for the forecast for Sunday and early next week...
Rain ends early, then breezy and cool. 47-51. A bit of light rain may linger through mid morning, with some sunshine likely by noon. Temperatures will only rise modestly as strong winds from the northwest increase to 20 mph with gusts up to 30 mph.
Winds die down overnight, with lows near freezing downtown and 25-30 in the colder suburbs.
A LOOK AHEAD
Sunny skies are a sure bet on Monday, with highs 50-55. A warm front is likely to bring a chance of showers on Tuesday (but not all day rain), with highs near 60. After the warm front passes, Wednesday should be pretty mild with highs well into the 60s. By Wednesday evening, a cold front may approach with a chance of showers and thunderstorms.
