Forecast: Quiet Weather to Finally Make Noise
Sunshine today; clouds, rain and wind tomorrow
Another day, another Nice Day Sun. That's the way it's gone as of late around these parts, and that trend continues today. But the pattern finally breaks tomorrow thanks to a slow-moving coastal storm that could bring gusty winds and over an inch of rain to parts of the area Thursday through early Saturday.
Mostly sunny. Low-to-mid 70s. What a spectacular day! Lots of sunshine and highs in the comfortable low-to-mid 70s. Some, though, might complain about their hair getting blown around by a 10-20 mph breeze from the northeast.
Tonight, mostly clear through most of the night with increasing clouds toward morning. A continuing breeze from the northeast will mix up the air enough to keep temperatures from dropping too far -- lows near 60 downtown, mid 50s in the suburbs.
Keep reading for the decidedly different forecast through the weekend. See NatCast for the forecast for tonight's second-to-last home game of the season.
Becoming overcast and rainy. Windy. Highs in the 60s. Morning skies will cloud up as a slow-moving coastal storm approaches from the south, with periods of rain from late morning on. The clouds and rain will make for the coolest day we've seen in quite some time, with highs only in the 60s. Winds gusts over 30 mph will add to the chill.
Periods of rain and gusty winds continue overnight. Temperatures don't do much, dropping to near 60 in the city and to the mid-to-upper 50s in the burbs.
The coastal storm sticks around on Friday, meaning mostly cloudy skies, occasional rain, decreasing wind but still breezy, and highs in the 60s. A tropical disturbance, which is currently near the Dominican Republic and could become a tropical depression, could interact with the coastal storm, but may not have a noticeable impact on our weather. Clouds and showers could linger Friday night with lows near 60. Confidence: Medium
Showers could still be scattered about the area early Saturday, but the overall trend will be a drying one with highs in the low 70s. Some peeks of sunshine are possible late in the day, but I wouldn't count on it, at least not yet. Confidence: Medium
Partly sunny and warmer Sunday with highs in the mid 70s to near 80 and just a small chance of a stray shower. Confidence: Medium
