Forecast: Beautiful Sunday Sunshine

By Brian Jackson

By Brian Jackson

We'll take this fine weather any time we can get it, and this time it isn't going anywhere. Mostly sunny skies and mild temperatures will greet us daily through late in the coming week. Our next chance for inclement weather could come next weekend as the series of systems bringing significant snows to the mountain west produce some rain showers as they make their way east.


Sunny and warmer, 77-80. Today that chill in the air won't be as noticeable as we'll see our warmest temperatures for at least the next six days. We'll wake up cool again but sunny skies will quickly warm us up. Afternoon highs will reach the upper 70s with some locales perhaps touching 80. Winds will be light.

Overnight, mostly clear skies and calm winds will once again allow us to dip down into the upper 40s, except low 50s in the city. Some high clouds may move in towards morning.

Confidence: High

Keep reading for the forecast through next Friday...


Partly to mostly sunny, 73-76.For Monday, we may wake up to mostly cloudy skies. During the day we should see these clouds thin out and by afternoon the balance should begin to shift into the sun's favor. Temperatures will be mild again, reaching the mid 70s. Winds from the northeast will blow at around 10 mph.

Monday night will again be clear and cool again with lows dropping into the mid 40s to around 50 downtown.


The dry weather pattern holds Tuesday through Friday. High pressure throughout the period will mean mostly sunny skies. It will cool off a bit behind a cold front on Tuesday when highs top out in the upper 60s. Then afternoon highs warm into the lower 70s for the rest of the work week. Confidence: Medium-High
