Forecast: Delightful Drying
Showers late tomorrow; cool weather arrives Wednesday
Say goodbye to the sticky, showery weather of the past several days. Winds from the northwest will dry us out today into the first part of tomorrow. A cold front will bring another brief chance of showers tomorrow evening, before we start a long stretch of dry, but cool weather on Wednesday.
Partly sunny, near 80. The weekend's tropical stickiness will gradually be replaced by less humid air from the northwest. Today's high of 80 will be more comfortable than yesterday's. We'll have a mix of sun and clouds, but fortunately, without the sun showers of the past couple days. You can leave the umbrellas at home.
Mostly clear to partly cloudy overnight, with lows in mid 50s in the suburbs to near 60 downtown. Light winds.

Warm, late day showers/t'storms. Near 80. A good part of the day will be partly sunny and pleasant with temperatures rising through the 70s. By mid to late afternoon, clouds will likely increase with a 40% chance of showers and thunderstorms. The highest chance of rain (and greatest rain coverage) will likely be north and northeast of the metro area.
Overnight, some scattered showers remain a possibility (30% chance) until the passing cold front pushes well east of the area by morning. Lows will generally be in the upper 50s.
Noticeably cooler air arrives Wednesday and Thursday as a Canadian airmass builds in from the northwest. Highs both days will be near 70, with northwesterly breezes at 10-15 mph. Both Wednesday and Thursday night will be chilly with lows near 50 downtown and in the mid 40s in the suburbs.Confidence: Medium-High
On Friday, a weak, rain-free cold front will reinforce the cool air in place. High temperatures Friday through the weekend should be near 70, with mostly sunny skies and generally light winds. Overnight lows will be crisp and cool, with lows from the low-to-mid 40s in the suburbs to near 50 downtown. Confidence: Medium-High
