EXPRESS FORECAST

Today: Mostly sunny. 83-86. | Tonight: Mostly clear. 60-66. | Tomorrow: Partly sunny, 40% chance of storms late. 84-87. A Look Ahead

FORECAST IN DETAIL

The upshot of last night's damaging storms is a beautiful late June Saturday. Behind the culprit cold front, cooler and drier air is pouring into the region. But another cold front will near the region later tomorrow, possibly setting off some more storms. Fortunately, they should be more isolated and less intense than yesterday's.

Today (Saturday): A refreshing wind from the north (at about 10 mph) will deliver a wonderful early summer day. Abundant late June sun will raise temperatures into the mid-80s, but humidity levels will be comfortable (dew points near 60). Confidence: High

Tonight: A perfect evening to dine al fresco. Under mostly clear skies, temperatures will gradually decline through the 70s, bottoming out in the mid-60s downtown and near 60 in the cooler suburbs towards dawn. Confidence: Medium-High

Tomorrow (Sunday): For a good part of the day, it will be dry and not too hot. But clouds are likely to increase during the afternoon, and a few storms could (40% chance) fire up, especially towards evening and to the west. Highs will be in the mid-80s with slightly higher humidity compared to today (dew points in the mid-60s).Confidence: Medium-High

Tomorrow Night: Showers and thunderstorms are possible (40%) overnight but should be pretty scattered and most likely before midnight. Lows will be in the mid-to-upper 60s. Confidence: Medium-High

A LOOK AHEAD

A slight chance of showers and storms stays in the forecast for Monday and Tuesday, but mainly late in the day and, again, widely scattered. Both days should be partly sunny and fairly pleasant temperature-wise, with highs in the low-to-mid 80s. Overnight lows will be in the 60s.

It's beautiful today, but last night's storm dumped 2" of rain on us in addition to a decent hailstorm.
