Forecast: Sunny Side Up
By Brian Jackson, Guest Forecaster
It gets brighter and brighter today as a cold front that passed through the region overnight exits off the coast. Today's weather will start off gray, especially for the early risers, with a slight chance for a lingering shower near the bay, but it will clear out through the day. High pressure builds in on Monday so expect a very sunny start to the work week.
Morning clouds, then sun. Low 70s. Last night's cold front leaves cloud cover and a slight (20%) chance for a shower in the early morning hours. These showers will come to an end before 10 a.m., followed by increasingly sunny skies, making for a very pleasant midday through evening. Temperatures will top out in the low to mid 70s with northwest winds at around 15 mph making it feel a little cooler.
Overnight, clear skies will mean a chill in the air and light northwest winds mean bring a jacket or sweater if you plan on being outside after dark. Overall, a pleasant evening with lows around 49 in the city but into the mid 40s in the suburbs.

Bright sunshine. Low 70s. Picture perfect springtime weather greets you on your way out the door on Monday. Bright sunshine will be the rule of the day so pack your sunglasses on the way to work. Afternoon highs will reach the low 70s.
Clear skies Monday night once again though not as cool. Lows will be dropping to the lower 50s.
A LOOK AHEAD
Tuesday will be similar to Monday. We'll see more sun and seasonably mild temperatures. Highs reach the mid-70s. Confidence: Medium-High
By Wednesday, clouds begin to show up again competing with the sun. I'll mention a slight (<30%) chance for a late shower, but most will remain warm and dry under partly sunny skies, highs in the upper 70s. Confidence: Medium-High
