Forecast: More Spectacular Spring Weather
Today: Sunny, highs in low 70s. Tonight: Mostly clear, cool. 40-48. | Tomorrow: Mostly sunny, again. 75-79. | A Look Ahead
FORECAST IN DETAIL
Splendid springtime conditions will prevail today after a chilly morning. Each day this week will get progressively warmer, and we should see 80s around the area by Thursday and Friday. The other bonus is that we will continue to see more sun than clouds. The upcoming Memorial Day Weekend remains a big question mark though.
Today (Tuesday): After some scattered frost in some of the distant north and west suburbs with 40s closer in, a steep temperature rise should bring us up to around 70 in most locations. Sunshine should dominate. Confidence: High
Tonight: Mostly clear again with cool conditions. Lows ranging from 40 in the outer suburbs to the upper 40s in the city. Confidence: High
Keep reading for the forecast through the holiday weekend...
Tomorrow (Wednesday): Excellent weather continues with mostly sunny skies, light breezes, and highs in the mid-to-upper 70s. Confidence: Medium-High
Tomorrow Night: Partly cloudy and not as cold, lows in the upper 40s to low 50s. Confidence: Medium-High
Thursday features some warming temperatures and maybe a touch of higher humidity as a wind from the south arrives. Mostly sunny skies are expected with highs in the low 80s. Confidence: Medium-High
Friday continues the warmer theme, along with some sunshine. Look for highs moving up into the middle or maybe upper 80s. Confidence: Medium
The Holiday Weekend is still a big challenge as uncertainties persist regarding a low pressure system currently menacing Florida. Moisture could feed north into our area or it could stay away to our south and west. Right now, the best bet is to call for increased clouds, an easterly wind flow, and a 40% chance of showers on Saturday and Sunday (highs mainly 70s). Monday could be warmer with upper 70s or low 80s possible, but still that pesky 40% chance of showers. Confidence: Low
