FORECAST IN DETAIL
If there's a way for it to rain this spring, it will. This time yesterday, a sunny Monday seemed like a sure thing. But now it appears we'll be dealt clouds, cool temperatures, and, yes, some more rain. Outside a chance of showers on Thursday and possibly Sunday, dry weather does appear to be in the cards for much of the rest of the week. But as it's spring 2009, stay tuned, as no dry forecast is necessarily safe.
Today (Monday): Remember the cool, clammy conditions of early last week? Here we go again. Clouds increase during the morning, with scattered light rain from mid-morning through the afternoon (70% chance). Any rain that falls will be patchy and amounts will be light -- totaling just around 0.1" or less. The clouds and rain will hold high temperatures in the low 60s. Confidence: Medium
Tonight: The weak area of low pressure (to our south) producing the light rain will move offshore, drying us out. Skies will gradually clear, with lows dipping down to the low 40s in the cooler suburbs to near 50 downtown. Confidence: Medium-High
Keep reading for the forecast through the weekend....
Tomorrow (Tuesday): The sunshine returns thankfully, as high pressure builds into the region. High temperatures will aim for 70 with a cool breeze from the north at 10 mph. Confidence: High
Tomorrow Night: It will be clear and quite chilly, especially in outlying areas. Lows dip down to near 40 in the colder suburbs (even some upper 30s?) with mid-40s downtown. Confidence: Medium-High
A glorious day on Wednesday, with sunshine and highs 70-75. Clouds increase at night though, with the outside chance of rain showers as a warm front lifts northward. Lows will be in the 50s. Confidence: Medium-High
A cold front moves through the region Thursday, offering a 50/50 chance of showers and thunderstorms, especially during the afternoon and evening. Highs will be in the mid-70s to as warm as 80 if we get some sunshine. Partly cloudy skies overnight, with lows in the 50s to near 60. Confidence: Medium
As Thursday's cold front won't pack much punch, both Friday and Saturday should be on the mild side. Highs should reach the mid-70s to near 80 both days (Saturday probably warmer than Friday), under partly sunny skies. The only caution I'd give is that said front could get hung up close enough to our vicinity that clouds and rain linger into Friday -- which would hold down temperatures. Confidence: Low-Medium
On Sunday, another cold front may pass through the area, setting off a few showers or storms. Highs should be around 80. Confidence: Low-Medium
