FORECAST IN DETAIL
I promise you the sun is still up there, shining in all its glory. If only the clouds would part so we could see it. While we might see skies brighten a bit today, I don't think we'll see a significant period of sun until tomorrow. Meanwhile, there's the potential for more soggy showers and storms this evening and then at times through Saturday. What about Mother's Day? It actually looks quite promising.
Today (Wednesday): Low clouds and areas of fog make for another dreary drive to work. At least we're rain-free through much of the day, and skies may even brighten a bit late morning into midday as highs reach the upper 60s to near 70. Clouds thicken again as the afternoon goes on, and showers could develop (40% chance) after about 4 or 5 p.m. Confidence: Medium
Tonight: Occasional showers and maybe a few thunderstorms become more likely (70% chance) starting around 8 p.m. and through the night, which will be rather breezy. Lows in the low 60s. Some spots could pick up another .25"-.50" of rain, with more possible for those who see a thunderstorm. Confidence: Low-Medium
Keep reading for the forecast through the weekend....
Tomorrow (Thursday): An area of showers could linger into Thursday morning, especially from I-95 toward points east. Once those move off, we should be looking at just a chance on an isolated shower or thunderstorm for the rest of the day. You can thank a warming breeze from the west and -- yes, finally some periods of sun -- for sending temperatures shooting toward highs in the upper 70s. Confidence: Medium
Tomorrow Night: Partly cloudy with an isolated shower. Lows in the upper 50s to near 60 in the burbs, and low-to-mid 60s downtown. Confidence: Medium
Friday, we're back to mostly cloudy skies with the potential for another round of showers and possibly thunderstorms, most likely in the afternoon or evening. Highs should get to the 70s. Clouds and shower chances persist Friday night as lows drop to the 50s (burbs) to near 60 (downtown). Confidence: Low
Depending on the timing of an approaching cold front, Saturday could turn out not so bad -- partly to mostly cloudy with highs in the 70s to near 80 -- until the front brings a chance of showers and thunderstorms late Saturday and Saturday night. Confidence: Low
Sunday (Mother's Day) is shaping up to be the cooler weekend day with highs in the 60s, but also the sunnier one with partly sunny skies and highs in the 60s to near 70. Confidence: Medium
