Forecast: Carbon Copycast

By Matt Rogers

Little change in forecast for next several days

A big blob of high pressure will stretch from the Southern Plains to the Northeast through the rest of the week, into the weekend and even into next week. We'll spend most of that time toward the southeastern edge of the high, which will mean consistent breezes from the north and northeast, occasional clouds, and only slight chances for showers. Bottom line: nice weather, but we will be trending back to that August dryness again.


Scattered clouds. HIghs in the 70s. Look for highs in the middle to upper 70s downtown with lower to middle 70s in the suburbs. The breeze will feel comfortable (around 5-10 mph) from the north and northeast, and we should expect those scattered clouds again similar to yesterday.

Tonight, partly cloudy as temperatures dip back down toward the middle to upper 50s in the suburbs and probably holding up in the lower 60s or right at 60 in the city itself.

Keep reading for the forecast through the weekend, and see NatCast and UnitedCast for the outlook for tonight's games.


Partly cloudy again with highs in the 70s. Those northeast winds will probably continue to build clouds over the area, and a couple showers or sprinkles aren't out of the question. But the sun should take turns, too, as temperatures max out in the 70s once more.

Wednesday night is looking like another repeat with lows in the 50s in the suburbs and lower 60s to near 60 in the city. Partly cloudy skies should prevail.


Thursday into the weekend is again looking rather repetitive here with 70s for highs, and lows in the 50s (suburbs) to lower 60s (city). Look for partly cloudy skies and only the outside chance of a shower (20%) on Sunday. Otherwise, what you see today is for the most part what you're likely to see for the next several days. And get this, as of right now, this pattern could continue into much of next week! This is making life much too easy for meteorologists. We will be wary. Confidence: Medium-High

The only reason JkR wakes up on game days is to read the UnitedCast, and you have failed him.

United Fans: Was today's game on the regular schedule? We don't have a record of it. Having said that, you can expect pleasantly cool conditions tonight with temperatures from dropping into the 60s during the game.

UnitedCast -- Sorry this one slipped through the cracks. UnitedCast now posted below this post on the main page. Enjoy the game!

CarbonCast: May have to call Al GORE in on this one!!!

Is this a forecast for increased carbon emissions or just a "carbon copy" of yesterday's forecast???

Today's weather seems much more cloudy and radar shows some rain to our south. It's 71F right now.
