FORECAST IN DETAIL
Rain is in the forecast both weekend days, but it will be dry more often than not. In fact, Sunday could be rain-free in many locations. Humidity, however, won't relent until Sunday night. Temperatures will be more or less seasonable, after a 19-day streak of above average temperatures ended yesterday.
Today (Saturday): Showers are possible (40%) in the morning as an area of low pressure pulls away. A little sunshine should emerge some places - mainly in the afternoon -- though more showers and thunderstorms could (40% chance) fire up again as a cold front slowly approaches the area. Highs will generally be in the low-to-mid 80s. Confidence: Medium
Tonight: Any showers and thunderstorms will likely diminish during the evening, with partly cloudy skies overnight. Lows will fall to the mid-60s in the suburbs to around 70 downtown. Confidence: Medium-High

Tomorrow (Sunday): The good news is that rain chances are lower tomorrow, but we won't be able to totally shake them due to the proximity of a front, just to our east. Most of day will be dry, with storm chances - most likely in the late afternoon or evening -- only around 20-30%. It will be partly sunny and a little less humid, with highs in the mid-80s. Confidence: Medium-High
Tomorrow Night: Partly cloudy skies during the evening may become mostly cloudy by morning, as a wave of low pressure forms a long the front stalled to our east. Lows should range from near 60 in the cooler suburbs to the mid-60s downtown. Confidence: Medium
At one time, Monday and Tuesday looked so promising weather-wise. Refreshing, Canadian high pressure was to build in from the northwest, giving us dry (low humidity), sunny days and clear, cool nights. Unfortunately, there are now signs that the weekend's front may not push far enough offshore for us to be in the clear. Instead, waves of low pressure may move up the front, giving us a chance of rain -- especially Monday. Conditions may improve Tuesday though some showers can't be ruled out, especially east of town. Highs both days will be below average, in the 70s. Confidence: Low-Medium
