CommuteCast: A September Preview; Shower?
More delightful conditions on Saturday
High temperatures in the low-to-mid 80s -- a few degrees below average -- combined with low levels of humidity and lots of sunshine have undoubtedly tempted many to start the weekend early this afternoon. Such conditions are more typical for the beginning of September -- a welcome treat for this time of year. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are approaching from the north. Many may fizzle out, while a few may drift through prior to sunset.
Tonight: After a risk of a passing shower or thunderstorm before sunset (only a 20% chance), a pleasant evening will lead to a cool night. Lows should bottom out about 5 to 10 degrees below normal, hitting the mid-to-upper 50s in the suburbs and low-to-mid 60s in the city. Winds will also be occasionally gusty from the northwest, so late-night revelers may need a sweater or light jacket. Can autumn be that far off?
Tomorrow: Saturday may end up being a top 10 day for the summer around here. Northwest winds will keep humidity way down and highs will reach into the low and mid 80s as sunshine dominates. Get out and enjoy!
