Forecast: Abrupt Reversal to Cool, Damp Weather
Today: Showers. Much cooler. Near 60. | Tonight: Drizzle. Upper 40s. | Tomorrow: Mostly cloudy. Near 60. | A Look Ahead
FORECAST IN DETAIL
The weather can find no middle ground these last 10 days of April. It is either cool and damp or hot and dry. After four straight days of sunshine and 90 degree temperatures, now we get rain/drizzle and 60 degrees temperatures for the last two days of the month. We've got weather whiplash in reverse.
Today (Wednesday): Showers are likely (70% chance) and even a rumble of thunder, especially during the morning. Some heavy bursts of rain are possible with rainfall totals around 0.5" (with some locally higher amounts). Rain is likely to diminish in coverage and intensity during the afternoon. Temperatures will remain mostly steady, right around 60 degrees during the day as a cool breeze off the ocean displaces all of the heat from the last several days. Confidence: Medium-High
Tonight: The maritime flow will persist, keeping it cloudy and cool with some drizzle possible. Lows will range from the upper 40s to near 50. Confidence: Medium-High
The forecast continues after the poll...
Tomorrow (Thursday): Flow from the east continues keeping it a little raw and damp. Some patchy drizzle is possible, especially during the first half of the day, with just a 40% chance of measurable rain. Highs will be near 60. Confidence: Medium-High
Tomorrow Night: A warm front will lift through the area, possibly giving us a shower or two (30% chance). More significantly, winds will become out of the south, likely bringing back the warmth for Friday. Lows will be in the mid-50s. Confidence: Medium
Flow from the south and partial clearing will likely bring a return to more summer-like temperatures Friday. Highs will reach well into the 70s and possibly above 80 depending if we get some appreciable sunshine. Late in the day, a thunderstorm could pop up (30% chance) due to the instability of the warmer air mass. Partly cloudy and mild overnight with lows from the upper 50s (in the suburbs) to lower 60s (downtown) Confidence: Medium-High
Saturday will be partly sunny and warm, but a cold front will push into the region in the afternoon or evening, perhaps (40% chance) triggering showers and thunderstorms. Highs will be near 80. Partial clearing Saturday night, with lows in the 50s. Confidence: Medium
Saturday's cold front may stall just south of the region Sunday, with waves of low pressure riding along it. The low pressure waves may (40% chance) bring rain back into the region depending on the location of the front -- which is uncertain. It will be cooler with highs in the 60s. Confidence: Low-Medium
