FORECAST IN DETAIL
Blue skies mixed with puffy fair-weather clouds, refreshingly cool air and low humidity. Throw in falling leaves and relaxing background music (I'm sure the Weather Channel has an appropriate tune) and you've got what every first full day of fall ought to be. Right? Oh, wait a sec. Hold on. Kill the music... Autumn officially arrived yesterday, but we stay rather warm with summer-like humidity into tomorrow. Come Friday, though, the weather should be worthy of cranking up that fall theme song.
Today (Wednesday): Today's look and feel should be quite similar to yesterday's, with mostly cloudy skies and temperatures rising from mild morning lows, in the mid-60s to near 70, to afternoon highs in the low 80s, perhaps mid-80s with enough sun. High humidity will make the air seem ripe for rain, but just a few passing showers or a t-storm may be all we get (30-40% chance you get wet where you happen to be). Confidence: Medium
Tonight: Shower chances become slim this evening and overnight. We'll keep that muggy feeling with partly to mostly cloudy skies and lows again in the mid-60s to near 70. Confidence: Medium
Keep reading for the forecast through the weekend. Check back this afternoon for our latest forecast in PM Update....
Tomorrow (Thursday): Could see a spotty shower or thunderstorm as a cold front works its way through the area. Unless the front arrives earlier than currently expected, we're looking at another fairly humid day as we hang on to partly cloudy skies and highs head for the mid-80s. Confidence: Medium
Tomorrow Night: The chance of a shower could continue into evening depending on the timing of that cold front. But eventually we're likely to see clearing skies as a breeze from the north brings in cooler and drier air. Lows in the upper 50s to low 60s. Confidence: Medium
Now this is what fall is supposed to feel like: Friday brings partly to mostly sunny skies, low humidity, a refreshing breeze from the north/northeast, and highs in the 70s. Partly cloudy and cool Friday night with lows in the 50s. Confidence: Medium-High
The glorious Friday weather may not last long, with the latest data indicating increasing clouds and increasing chances of rain Saturday and Saturday night as a storm system advances from the west. High temperatures could be anywhere from the upper 60s to mid-70s depending on how early or late in the day clouds and rain arrive. Confidence: Low-Medium
Exactly how quickly our weekend storm will depart isn't clear yet. As of now, I'd say the general timing looks to be a continuing chance of rain early Sunday with partial clearing as the day goes on and highs in the 70s, maybe near 80 if the sun comes out early enough in the day. Confidence: Low
