FORECAST IN DETAIL
For most of the next six days, dry weather will rule. So while you may hear a lot about rain chances, they'll tend to be low. For every three days rain is in mentioned in the forecast, you may get wet just once. The other piece of good news is that the forecast for the holiday weekend looks better than this time yesterday, with mainly dry weather an increasing possibility -- but not a done deal...
Today (Tuesday): We'll have a few more clouds and a touch more humidity (dew points near 60, rather than the mid-to-upper 50s) than yesterday, but generally pleasant conditions. Under a mix of clouds and sun, high temperatures will aim for the low 80s. Yes, a lonely shower or thunderstorm could (30% chance) fire up in the afternoon or early in the evening. Winds will be from the west at 10-15 mph. Confidence: Medium-High
Tonight: Any evening showers will rapidly dissipate after dark. The rest of the evening will be partly cloudy, with lows near 60 in the cooler suburbs, with mid-to-upper 60s downtown Confidence: Medium-High
Keep reading for the forecast through the weekend....
Tomorrow (Wednesday): A disturbance will swing through the region, probably giving us our best chance of afternoon/evening showers and thunderstorms of the week, but just around 40%. Outside any showers/storms, we'll probably have more clouds than sun with highs in the upper 70s to low 80s depending on how much sun is able to sneak through the cloud canopy. Confidence: Medium-High
Tomorrow Night: Showers will gradually diminish after dark, with a pleasant evening thereafter. Lows will range from 60-65 (suburbs-city) under partly cloudy skies. Confidence: Medium-High
Thursday and Friday both look pretty nice. The upper level low to our north will be winding down, so afternoon shower and storm chances will drop -- down to about 20%. Both days will have considerable sunshine with partial cloud cover, and highs in the mid-80s. The overnights will be dry with temperatures 60-67 (suburbs-city). Confidence: Medium-High
The forecast for Independence Day is pretty good at the moment. A stalled front may be far enough south and east to suppress most thunderstorm activity -- though it bears watching. I'll call for partly sunny skies, with only a 20% chance of late afternoon or evening thunderstorms. Highs will most likely be in the low-to-mid-80s. Partly cloudy overnight, with lows in the 60s.Confidence: Medium
Sunday will probably also be dry, with just a 20% chance of late day storms. High temperatures may be a little warmer, climbing to the mid- or possibly upper 80s. Confidence: Low-Medium
