FORECAST IN DETAIL
The wild winds of the work week have departed and the weekend won't be half bad. Yes, some spotty light rain -- maybe mixing with a little light snow -- could dampen the pavement tonight. But the weekend's daylight hours will have some sun and tolerable temperatures with today milder than tomorrow. The next chance of any significant storminess probably arrives in the middle of next week, with primarily rain.
Today (Saturday): Some sunshine is likely in the morning followed by some increase in clouds during the afternoon. Temperatures will be pretty mild, heading up to 50 or even a few degrees higher. Confidence: Medium-High
Tonight: A weak disturbance will swing by to our south. Its moisture may stretch far enough north to produce a period of light rain, perhaps mixing with light snow in the north and west suburbs. If the rain develops, it would most likely occur between 6 p.m. and 2 a.m. Low temperatures will drop to near freezing in the colder suburbs to the mid-30s downtown. Confidence: Medium-High
Keep reading for the forecast into early next week.
Tomorrow (Sunday): A cool, but light breeze from the north will result in temperatures about 5-8 degrees below today. Still, it will be a pretty nice day with lots of sunshine and seasonable highs in the mid-to-upper 40s. Confidence: Medium-High
Tomorrow Night: Mostly clear skies early will likely become mostly cloudy late as another disturbance spins up to the south. Any precipitation should remain south of the region, but it may be a close call. Lows will bottom out in the upper 20s to around 30, cold enough for snow if any precipitation sneaks a little farther north (less than 20% chance). Confidence: Medium
Mostly cloudy skies Monday morning should gradually clear in the afternoon. It will be rather chilly with highs only near 40 as cold air continues to filter in from the north. Overnight, it will be quite brisk with lows 20-25 (suburbs-city). Confidence: Medium-High
High pressure builds in Tuesday, bringing lots of sunshine and seasonable temperatures in the mid 40s. The high moves offshore at night as our next storm starts its approach from the west. There's a slight chance (20%) of rain or snow is possible by morning with lows 30-35. Confidence: Medium
Cloudy skies with rain and/or snow likely Wednesday (more likely rain) with highs near 40. Confidence: Low-Medium
