Forecast: A Touch of Grey, Then Back to Bright

By Brian Jackson

by Brian Jackson

Our weekend concludes with cooler conditions and likely overcast skies. Some sunshine and mild conditions return Monday afternoon, possibly lasting through Election Day. By late Election Day and Wednesday, unsettled weather begins to make an appearance as another coastal storm may dampen our moods and skies.


Mostly cloudy, spits of drizzle, 55-58. A cold front gets hung up today over the region briefly ending our stretch of pleasant weather. Most of us will see a mostly cloudy day but marine flow may bring in enough moisture to create drizzle in some areas. Afternoon highs will be much cooler, only reaching the upper 50s. Winds will be out of the northeast at 5-10 mph.

Clouds will remain overhead during the night with most of the drizzle ending. Those areas that are dampened by rainfall may see fog develop overnight. Lows will drop into the middle 40s and winds will blow lightly out of the east.

Keep reading for the forecast through mid-week including Election Day.


Clearing out, 63-66. High pressure will move back in during the day on Monday slowly clearing out our skies. By the evening commute, those of us heading west should once again face the sun in our eyes. We'll warm up as well with our drier weather with afternoon highs reaching the mid 60s. Winds will be out of the southeast at 3-8 mph.

Skies will be clear to partly cloudy overnight. These conditions mean a cool night for the suburbs with lows dropping to near 40, with the metro areas staying in the mid-to-upper 40s. Winds will be light out of the southeast.


The way it looks now, weather shouldn't be any excuse not to get out and vote on Election Day -- however, we'll need to watch some storminess developing to the south. Assuming the storm remains to the south, we should have partly sunny conditions with afternoon highs in the mid-to-upper 60s. Clouds may gradually increase -- especially to the south and east. For your Wednesday the coastal storm may well move northeast along the coast providing the possibility of some rain (40% chance). Highs should be near 60. Confidence: Medium
