FORECAST IN DETAIL
Another weekend is upon us and, as luck would have it, rain chances are returning. But it doesn't look to be nearly as soggy or chilly as what we saw a week ago. And if we can get through mostly cloudy and sometimes showery weather today through Saturday night, then mostly splendid conditions arrive just in time for Sunday morning's Marine Corps Marathon.
Today (Friday): Maybe some morning peeks of sun. Otherwise, a slowly approaching cold front means mostly cloudy skies, but probably no rain through midday. The clouds, combined with an onshore breeze from the east/northeast, should limit highs to the mid-60s. As clouds thicken, showers are possible during the afternoon into evening but are not a sure thing for everyone -- about a 50% chance. Confidence: Medium
Tonight: Shower chances remain at around 50% through the night, so you may want to take that umbrella just in case. Breezes pick up from the south overnight with lows mostly in the upper 50s. Confidence: Medium
Keep reading for the forecast through the weekend into early next week...
Tomorrow (Saturday): Doesn't look like the steady soaking rain we saw this past Saturday. But occasional showers are possible (60-70% chance) and maybe a thunderstorm, especially during the afternoon into evening, under mostly cloudy skies. As the cold front closes in from the west, 10-20 mph winds from the south out ahead of the front keep us fairly mild -- highs around 70. Confidence: Medium
Tomorrow Night: The details depend on exactly when the cold front passes through. For now, though, it looks like a mostly cloudy evening with a continued chance of showers, then clearing skies overnight. Lows near the low 50s downtown, but possibly upper 40s in the suburbs. Confidence: Medium
Sunday: Much improved! Sunny skies, a light breeze from the northwest and highs in the 60s -- not terribly cold behind the cold front. Low 50s should be cool but comfortable for the 8 a.m. start of the Marine Corps Marathon. Confidence: Medium-High
The weekend is likely to finish mostly clear Sunday night with temperatures dipping down to lows in the 40s. Confidence: Medium-High
We should hang on to partly to mostly sunny skies Monday with highs possibly making the mid-60s to near 70. Not bad, eh!? Confidence: Medium
Monday night and Tuesday we'll have to watch what happens with a cold front that may approach from the west and a coastal storm that could get organized and come at us from the south. Confidence: Low
