Forecast: No End to Nice Weather Near

By Jason Samenow

Our amazing stretch of dry, pleasant weather continues today, tomorrow and well into next week. It's all thanks to a persistent area of high pressure to the north which is feeding refreshing Canadian air southward and blocking storminess. This weather pattern isn't changing any time soon, which is wonderful news for outdoor pursuits.


Partly sunny. Mid 70s. We'll have some scattered clouds, but still a good deal of sunshine. After a crisp start (40s in some suburbs), afternoon highs will reach the mid 70s with a light breeze from the northeast at 5-10 mph.

Overnight, skies should be mainly clear, with lows near 50 in the cooler suburbs and in the upper 50s downtown.

Confidence: High

Keep reading for the forecast into early next week. See NatCast for the forecast for tonight's game and don't miss SkinsCast for Sunday's game.


Mostly sunny. Near 80. With abundant sunshine and not much in the way of cloud cover, temperatures should get up close to 80. Winds will be light.

Clear skies overnight, with lows from the upper 40s in the cooler suburbs to the mid 50s downtown.

Confidence: High


High pressure will continue to be parked to the north Monday through Wednesday meaning more comfortable and dry weather. Highs each day will generally be in the mid 70s, with lows from the upper 40s to mid 50s (suburbs to city). Confidence: High

It's awesome out there. Gotta love being able to mow the lawn without breaking a sweat.
