FORECAST IN DETAIL
With the exception of a weak cool front later tonight into tomorrow morning, the rest of our work week continues to look quite fantastic with highs in the 70s, and dare-I-say 80s, and typically cool autumnal nights and mornings. The weekend might be a different story though as a much stronger cold front approaches the area. This could spell Saturday rain chances and a significant cool-down Sunday or Monday.
Today (Tuesday): The sun should be the dominant player today, helping to inspire high temperatures into the upper 60s to low 70s. However, cloud cover should slowly increase in the late afternoon toward evening. Light winds expected. Confidence: Medium-High
Tonight: Clouds will be more dominant and shower chances arrive especially after midnight (30% chance). Temperatures will not drop as much as the last few nights due to the cloud cover, but we still expect mainly 50s and 60s. Confidence: Medium

Tomorrow (Wednesday): Morning clouds and perhaps a morning shower (30% chance) should transition to clearing skies especially during the afternoon. Highs should range in the upper 60s to low 70s once more. Winds from the west and northwest will pick up to around the 20 mph range with some higher gusts. Confidence: Medium
Tomorrow Night: Clearing skies continue with calming winds and cooler temperatures. Look for those lows to drop back down into the 40s in the suburbs to low 50s in the city. Confidence: Medium-High
Thursday looks really ripe for fantastic conditions. Highs should push up higher toward the middle 70s and sunshine is expected to dominate. Light breezes accompany the comfortable temperatures. Confidence: Medium
Friday has the opportunity to be our warmest day of this week with upper 70s to low 80s (warmest in city and points south) along with mostly sunny skies. Winds are expected to be coming from the southwest.Confidence: Medium
Last weekend worked out much better than originally expected, but your forecaster is not sure if this upcoming one will fare as well. A strong polar cold front will be invading the middle of the nation. You will likely hear stories about unusual early-season cold and snow in the Midwest, Plains and Rockies. We should be on the warm side of this front on Saturday with 70s (possibly low 80s) and scattered showers and thunderstorms. On Sunday, it appears as though the first wave of cooling may push into the area and lower highs into the 60s under partly cloudy skies. Confidence: Low
A coastal storm is possible on Monday and Monday night, offering cold rain chances. Behind the storm on Monday night and Tuesday, mainly elevated areas especially north and west of the city could have a first (small) chance to see a wet snowflake or two as temperatures cool down to the lowest levels of the season so far. Confidence: Low
