Forecast: Signs Still Point to Sunny Weekend
But first, some clouds and maybe a couple showers today
For sure the early forecasts for a pleasant holiday weekend were too good to be true, right? Now that the weekend has almost arrived, you're changing your forecast, aren't you? After all, this is Memorial Day Weekend -- obviously clouds and rain are going to rear their ugly head at some point, no?
Partly sunny. Quite breezy. Couple showers or sprinkles? Upper 60s to near 70. Much like yesterday, we'll see a mix of sun and clouds with highs reaching the upper 60s to near 70. Could see a couple passing showers or sprinkles, especially north of town. And it'll be quite breezy -- from the west in the morning, northwest in the afternoon -- sustained at 15-25 mph with higher gusts.
Tonight, mostly clear with diminishing winds and lows in the upper 40s to near 50 downtown, low to mid 40s in the burbs.

Mostly sunny. Low 70s. Nice way to launch into the holiday weekend, with mostly sunny skies, highs in the low 70s, and winds from the northwest at 10-15 mph. Overnight, mostly clear with lows near 50 downtown, mid 40s in the burbs.
Saturday and Sunday should be spectacular, with sunny skies and light winds. Highs in the low to mid 70s on Saturday, and mid to upper 70s on Sunday. Confidence: High
Monday looks great, too, and a bit more summery for those barbecues and pool parties. Highs should get at least to near 80, maybe even low to mid 80s, under mostly sunny skies. Some clouds may work their way into the picture late in the day as the long weekend winds down. Confidence: Medium-High
