Forecast: After Today, A Sunny & Warm Display
Although October has featured slightly below average temperatures and we'll have to contend with clouds and possible showers today, a sprawling ridge of high pressure will build over the area by Friday. This weather pattern will foster abundant sunshine and temperatures some 5-10 degrees above average through the holiday weekend. That's great news for outdoor plans.
Mostly cloudy. AM Shower? 70s. Temperatures will start off in the 50s today with overcast skies. A few passing showers are possible through about mid-morning. Thereafter, the day should be dry with mostly cloudy skies slowly giving way to peeks of sunshine by late afternoon. It will be a bit milder, too with highs ranging from 74-78, depending on how much sun we see.
If you're out and about this evening you'll notice clearing skies; temperatures will eventually drop to the mid 50s to near 60 downtown.
Keep reading for the forecast through the beginning of next week as well as the SkinsCast for this Sunday's game against the Rams.
Mostly sunny. Upper 70s. Consider yourself warned: it will be tough to stay inside on Friday. High pressure moving into the area will allow for a great deal of sunshine with high temperatures reaching the upper 70s in most spots. Definitely no need for the umbrella!
Bring a jacket with you if you're out Friday evening or night, as clear skies will allow temperatures to eventually drop to 50-55. Confidence: High
If you're the outdoors type you'll bask in the gorgeous mid-October weather on tap this weekend. Expect mostly sunny skies both Saturday and Sunday with light winds and warm afternoon highs ranging from the mid 70s to near 80. Both nights will feature mostly clear skies with lows primarily in the mid-to-upper 50s. Confidence: High
The nice weather continues right into Columbus Day Monday with lots of sunshine once again and quite warm -- for mid October -- temperatures around, or perhaps a couple degrees above 80. Overnight lows should be near 60. Confidence: Medium-High
