FORECAST IN DETAIL
April cold spells just aren't much fun for anyone. Especially after Sunday gave us a glimpse of just how good spring can be -- sunshine, highs in the low 70s and cherry blossoms barely past their peak. Now we're feeling the chill of gusty breezes continuing today and temperatures only a little warmer than yesterday. 60s are within reach tomorrow into the weekend, but 70 doesn't look to be in our immediate future.
Today (Wednesday): Under partly sunny skies, we'll top out a few degrees higher than yesterday -- in the low-to-mid 50s. But winds gusting to near 30 mph from the west will keep things feeling rather chilly. Confidence: High
Tonight: Winds die down after sunset and temperatures start their decline. With partly to mostly cloudy skies, overnight lows should be near 40 downtown and in the mid-to-upper 30s in the suburbs. A late-night sprinkle or snow shower is possible, especially south of town. Confidence: Medium-High
Keep reading for the forecast through the weekend...
Tomorrow (Thursday): Any morning cloudiness (and maybe a sprinkle or flurry, especially to the south) should quickly give way to a partly to mostly sunny and somewhat breezy day (winds 10-15 mph) with highs in the upper 50s to low 60s. Confidence: Medium-High
Tomorrow Night: A warmer night than the past few -- lows in the 40s and, toward morning, increasing clouds with a chance of light showers. Confidence: Medium
We could see some showers around on Friday (50-60% chance), especially in the afternoon and into Friday night, as our next storm system moves in from the west. Daytime highs again head for the upper 50s to low 60s, followed by Friday night lows in the upper 40s to low 50s. Confidence: Low-Medium
Cloudy skies and a risk of showers may continue into Saturday morning. But by midday I think we'll see the rain threat end and the sun trying to break through. Temperature-wise it looks like a cool one -- highs in the 50s and a strong breeze from the northwest. Beezy and cold Saturday night with lows in the 30s. Confidence: Medium
Winds should lighten up on Sunday and we should see tons of sun. But we're still left with highs only in the 50s. Confidence: Medium
