Forecast: November off to Nice Start

By Jason Samenow

Warm today; crisp tomorrow

November welcomes us with a beautiful Saturday. With autumn foliage beginning to peak in the north and west suburbs, what better day to spend outside. We cool down tomorrow before warming up a little to start next week. But flow from the east Monday and the possible development of a coastal storm late Tuesday may temper any warm-up.

TODAY (SATURDAY)

Mostly sunny, some increase in late afternoon clouds. 67-72. Early morning temperatures in the 30s (suburbs) and 40s call for an extra layer, but temperatures will rise steadily with each passing hour. By noon, we'll be into the low 60s with lots of sunshine. The late afternoon will bring an increase in high clouds, but it will be mild with highs around 70. Winds will be light.

Overnight a weak cold front drops southward through the area. It will bring some cloud cover but nothing more than a sprinkle (if that). Towards morning skies should begin to clear, with lows near 40 in the colder suburbs and mid-40s downtown.

Confidence: Medium-High

Keep reading for the forecast through election day. See SkinsCast for the outlook for the Monday night showdown against the Steelers.

TOMORROW (SUNDAY)

Mostly sunny and seasonably cool. 57-61. Temperatures drop tomorrow relative to today -- enough that it will be a noticeable but not radical change. Under partly sunny skies, most areas should reach the upper 50s with a light wind from the east at 5-10 mph.

Partly cloudy overnight with the possibility (30%) of low clouds and drizzle towards morning due to marine flow (from the east). Lows should range from 40-45.

A LOOK AHEAD

Low clouds and drizzle are possible (30% chance) Monday morning as you head back to work. By afternoon, there's a good chance that some sunshine will return, with highs near 60. Mostly clear Monday night, with lows in the upper 30s (suburbs) to the mid 40s (city). Confidence: Medium

On election day, after a partly sunny start, it may cloud over as a coastal storm develops to our south. By the time returns are coming in Tuesday night, some rain is a possibility (30% chance). High should reach the low 60s.Confidence: Medium
