FORECAST IN DETAIL
Dust off your (of late) lightly used umbrellas, as they'll be getting a lot of work over the next several days. Several fronts will lift through the metro region bringing multiple rainy episodes. A short window of nice weather may present itself tomorrow morning (and again Saturday morning?) into the mid-afternoon. So that will be the opportunity to sneak in a round of golf if you can get the time off.
Today (Thursday): Scattered and mostly light showers are possible for the morning commute, but the steadier rain will move in around lunch and continue during the afternoon. The rain will hold down temperatures, with highs only near 50. Rainfall totals should range from 0.25-0.5." Confidence: Medium-High
Tonight: The rain will gradually taper off during the evening, with most spots drying out after midnight. Skies may even clear before morning, with lows in the upper 30s in the cooler suburbs to the low-to-mid 40s downtown. Confidence: Medium-High
Keep reading for the forecast through early next week...
Tomorrow (Friday): Weak high pressure will provide a brief period of sunshine and a bit of warmth. However, a wave of low pressure riding along a front stalled to our south may increase clouds during the afternoon and even (30% chance) produce some light rain over the area late in the afternoon and during the evening. Highs should reach the low 60s. Confidence: Medium-High
Tomorrow Night: Mostly cloudy, and there's a 40% chance of light rain (higher chances to the south). Lows should fall into the upper 40s. Confidence: Medium
On Saturday, the morning may end up being mostly dry (70% chance) but, at the moment, the afternoon (especially after 2 or 3 p.m.) appears to be wet (70% chance). Showers and even some thunderstorms are possible as a cold front approaches the region. Some locally heavy rainfall may accompany the showers and storms. High temperatures should be near 60. As the front slowly traverses the area overnight, occasional showers will probably continue (60% chance), with lows near 50. Confidence: Medium-High
Some shower activity may (50% chance) linger through around noon Sunday, followed by gradual clearing. The sun stands a good chance (70%) of emerging during the afternoon, with highs near 60. It will become breezy, with winds from the northwest at 15-25 mph. Confidence: Medium
We dry out completely Monday as high pressure returns to the area. Highs will again be near 60 under blue skies. Confidence: Medium-High
