Forecast: Warmth Concludes the Weekend
Today: Mostly sunny. 62-66 | Tonight: Partly cloudy. 31-34. | Tomorrow: Sunny, cooler. 49-52. | A Look Ahead
FORECAST IN DETAIL
We'll end the weekend with a brief shot of spring warmth to enjoy. The warmth will be short-lived, however, as a dry cold front quickly brings us back to seasonable, albeit sunny conditions. Make sure to take along a light jacket on your way to and from work Monday as a strong Canadian high pressure system will likely keep a chill in the air during the morning/evening hours.
Today (Sunday): Plan on wearing a sweater if you're one for a morning jog this morning as we'll start out the day in the mid-30s. Temperatures will rebound quickly, however, as the early spring sun shines bright in the morning. Your afternoon highs will likely reach the low-to-mid 60s downtown and perhaps a bit cooler in the northern suburbs. We could see some thin, high clouds moving overhead late in the day as a weak cold front approaches but that should not block much of the sun. Winds will be light and shifting throughout the day from south to west to north. Confidence: High
Tonight: Overnight we'll likely drop almost 30 degrees under partly cloudy skies. Lows will dip into the mid-30s by morning. A light wind from the north will continue to be very light and should go calm for some late night periods.
Keep reading for the forecast through your mid-week...
Tomorrow (Monday): You'll notice that a cold front moved through as our highs tomorrow will be 10-15 degrees cooler than today. Still, I have to call it pleasant after our recent pattern of clouds. Lots of sun and temperatures climbing to near 50 during the afternoon welcome you back to work. Beware of the wind from the north though, it will blow at around 10 mph and might create a bit of a chill if you're stuck in the shade. Confidence: Medium-High
Tomorrow Night: Again temperatures will plummet as the sun wanes. Starry skies will allow temperatures to drop into the low 30s. he colder suburbs could wake up to some frost on their cars -- so don't put away those ice scrapers yet. A light wind from the north will dwindle to calm overnight. Confidence: Medium-High
Tuesday a strong, cold high pressure center over Quebec sends a reinforcing shot of cool air to our region. Despite plenty of sun, afternoon highs will struggle to reach 50 degrees. Confidence: Medium-High
Wednesday it will begin to warm-up. Our skies will remain mostly sunny for the most part though some clouds could increase during the afternoon hours. Afternoon highs will warm into the mid-50s. Confidence: Medium-High
