FORECAST IN DETAIL
If you can put up with one more day of dreary and raw weather, you'll be rewarded with a near-180 weatherwise for tomorrow into the weekend, with temperatures soaring to above normal levels -- mid 70s! -- with sunshine just as prevalent as clouds have been the past few days. In fact, after today, it appears we'll stay dry all the way through to late Sunday or Monday. Get out and enjoy!
Today (Wednesday): Sorry, sun lovers, today looks like a near-repeat of yesterday, with thick overcast skies and lots of drizzle. Some steadier rain may develop in the afternoon (50% chance). Highs will once again struggle to reach the 50 degree mark, with winds from the north at 10-15 mph making it feel even more raw. Confidence: Medium-High
Tonight: Some scattered showers -- mostly of the light variety -- will spill into the evening and overnight hours with continued low cloud cover. Overnight lows drop to near 40 in most areas. Storm rainfall totals (since Monday night) will probably end up around 1" - with 0.25-0.5" falling today. Confidence: Medium-High
Keep reading for the forecast through the weekend.
Tomorrow (Thursday): What a difference a day makes! Strong high pressure building over the region will produce increasing sunshine and foster much milder temperatures in low- to perhaps even mid-60s for afternoon highs. Umbrella weather, this is not. Confidence: High
Tomorrow Night: Clear skies and light winds will allow temperatures to drop into the upper 30s overnight (mid-30s in the suburbs), so a jacket is most likely warranted if you're outside. Confidence: High
A word of warning: your desire to play hooky from work or school on Friday may be abnormally high. That's because we're likely to see massive amounts of sunshine (to the point where you may have to struggle to spot so much as a single cloud) with temperatures soaring into the low 70s during the afternoon hours. The night will feature clear skies with lows dropping into the mid-to-upper 40s. Confidence: High
Another very mild day is on tap for Saturday, though clouds, especially during the afternoon hours, may rapidly filter into the area courtesy of a "backdoor" cold front dropping south from New England. Even still, high temperatures will probably rise into the low-to-mid 70s; overnight lows -- quite possibly propped up by cloud cover -- in the low 50s. Confidence: Medium
The outlook for Sunday is for a blend of clouds and sun with somewhat cooler afternoon highs in the mid-to-upper 60s. There are some indications that showers may try to develop by the evening or overnight hours but this is far from a sure bet. Overnight lows, nonetheless, probably drop to the upper 40s to low 50s. Confidence: Low-Medium
