Forecast: Showers, Partial Clearing, Then Cooling
FORECAST IN DETAIL
Drier weather will be slowly work its way towards us but won't truly arrive until Tuesday. Before then, we'll still have the threat of some occasional showers, though they'll likely be few and far between. After a powerful cold front breezes through late Monday, look forward to an extended stretch of fall temperatures to go along with sunny skies.
Today (Sunday): After yesterday's/last night's deluge, we'll be slow to dry out, but we will see marked improvement. Showers should be ending west-to-east during the morning hours with another round of light showers possible (30% chance) during the afternoon. With a cold pool of air in the upper atmosphere, any sun may create enough instability to produce these light showers. This sun will also make the temperature forecast tricky, with temperatures near 70 in overcast areas, but a quick shot of sun could easily push some locales to the mid-70s. Winds will be westerly at 5-10 mph.Confidence: Medium-High
Tonight: Overnight we should see some partial clearing. Under these partly cloudy skies we'll have quite a nice evening to recharge for the work week. Overnight lows will generally dip into the mid-50s with some upper 50s to near 60 downtown. Winds will be from the west/southwest at 5-10 mph.Confidence: High

Tomorrow (Monday):Another, stronger cold front will swing through the area Monday afternoon/evening. However, this front will have less moisture (compared to yesterday's) to work with and we'll only see a 30-40% chance of rain showers developing. Highs will warm into the mid-70s and winds will become breezy, increasing from the west/southwest at 10-20 mph. Confidence: Medium
Tomorrow Night: While the front continues to work through I can't rule out a shower or two early, but most of us should see a rain-free night. Clouds will begin to clear as northwest flow will quickly bring in some drier air. Overnight lows will turn cooler, with low-to-mid 50s downtown with a few upper-40s scattered in the cooler suburbs. Winds will be west/northwest at 5-15 mph. Confidence: Medium-High
Tuesday and Wednesday you'll definitely notice that a cold front has come through as fall-ish weather takes over the region. We'll have plenty of sun but temperatures will struggle to break 70 both days.
Overnights will be brisk as well. Under partly cloudy skies temperatures will fall off overnight, with lows in the upper40s and lower 50s. Confidence: Medium-High
