FORECAST IN DETAIL
There's cool rain in the forecast and that's good news. Not for those of us yearning for spring sun and warmth. But for the region as a whole, which is moisture-starved and edging toward a full-fledged drought if we don't get substantial precipitation soon. So get ready to pick your spots for outdoor time -- today and Friday should be mostly dry -- but also have some indoor ideas should tomorrow and the weekend be rather rainy.
Today (Wednesday): We start the day partly sunny. But by late morning or early afternoon we're looking at mostly cloudy conditions with highs near 50. Some showers could arrive (30% chance) during the evening hours (approximately the 7 p.m.-11 p.m. range). Confidence: Medium
Tonight: Showers, probably of the light to moderate variety, are a better bet (50-60% chance) during the late evening and overnight (from 11 p.m. or so onward). Lows mainly in the low 40s. Confidence: Medium
Keep reading for the forecast through the weekend...
Tomorrow (Thursday): We keep the 50-60% chance of showers through the morning, with periods of steadier rain likely from midday into the evening. Highs are once again on the cool side -- low 50s -- under overcast skies. Confidence: Medium
Tomorrow Night: Rain ends overnight with partial clearing possible. Lows in the 40s. Confidence: Medium-High
Between weather systems, I think an area of high pressure will give us a pretty nice day for much of Friday with partly sunny skies and highs in the low 60s. The threat of showers may enter the picture again toward evening. Confidence: Medium
Friday night doesn't look like a washout, but we do need to allow for a 40% chance of some showers as a little system passing mainly to our south tries to catch us with its northern edge of preipitation. Lows in the low-to-mid 40s. Confidence: Medium
Another storm system and associated cold front could make for a mostly cloudy and showery weekend with highs in the upper 50s to near 60, and lows Saturday night near 50. Probably not the forecast you were hoping for, but remember we need some significant rain soon if we're going to avoid more serious drought conditions. Confidence: Medium
