Forecast: Consistent Comfort Coming
A cool front glides through the region very early this morning, stirring up the winds and slowly, but surely, drying out our recently sultry air. By tomorrow, high pressure builds into the region initiating a stretch of mild, rain-free days that may last through the weekend.
Quite breezy, and warm. 84-88. Behind this morning's cold front passage, winds from the northwest will be a little gusty as you head out (15-20 mph). These winds will slowly decrease throughout the day. The cooler and less humid air behind the front will be countered by this afternoon's strong sunshine, so afternoon highs should still reach well into the 80s.
This evening, the cooler and drier air will become more noticeable. Lows drop to near 60 in the city and in the mid 50s in the suburbs. Clear skies early may give way to some increase in cloudiness late.
Keep reading for the forecast through the weekend. See NatCast for tonight's game.
Mostly cloudy and cooler. Mid 70s. High pressure will build into the region from the northwest, but disturbances rippling along a cold front stalled to the south may provide a good deal of cloud cover. Both the cooler airmass overhead and the clouds may hold high temperatures in the mid 70s.
Skies remain partly cloudy overnight, with lows from near 60 downtown to the mid 50s in the suburbs.
High pressure essentially parks itself over the Northeast Wednesday through Sunday giving us a remarkably consistent forecast. The entire period should offer partly to mostly sunny skies and seasonably pleasant temperatures. Afternoon highs each day will probably reach the upper 70s to near 80. Overnight lows should generally be in the low 50s in the suburbs to the upper 50s downtown. Confidence: Medium-High
