FORECAST IN DETAIL
Enjoying the long weekend? The weather itself is taking a sort of vacation, too. Gone is the excitement of last week's highs near 70 and winds gusting over 60 mph. In their place we have a relatively quiet stretch, which started over the weekend, of temperatures near or a bit below average, light winds and little to no precipitation. Things pick up again -- in the form of some rain and wind -- starting Wednesday.
Today (Monday): A mostly cloudy morning should turn into a partly sunny afternoon. A steady breeze around 10-15 mph from the northwest combined with rather chilly temperatures -- highs in the upper 30s to near 40 -- will make for a pretty cold day. Confidence: Medium-High
Tonight: Quite cold with evening temperatures dropping through the 30s, down to overnight lows in the low-to-mid 20s (suburbs to city). Skies should be mostly clear with evening breezes around 5-10 mph diminishing to near 5 mph or less by morning. Confidence: High
Keep reading for the forecast through the work week...
Tomorrow (Tuesday): Kinda cold, but all in all a nice day -- partly to mostly sunny with light winds and highs in the low-to-mid 40s. Confidence: High
Tomorrow Night: Not as cold as tonight, with increasing clouds and lows in the upper 20s to low 30s (suburbs to city). Confidence: High
Wednesday we'll see mostly cloudy skies with winds gradually increasing from the south during the day as a storm system approaches from the west. That'll mean a chance of rain showers starting around late morning -- possibly mixing with some snowflakes at the start -- and then rain shower chances lasting into Wednesday night. Daytime temps should max out in the 40s, followed by Wednesday night lows in the 30s. Confidence: Medium
Thursday arrives as a moderately windy day behind the departing storm system, and a few showers could linger. But temperatures don't drop off as highs reach the 40s again. Confidence: Medium
Friday closes out the work week in not-so-fine fashion. We stay windy -- and colder with highs struggling to reach the upper 30s to near 40. Maybe some snow flurries to top things off. Confidence: Medium
