Forecast: Sublime Sunshine...Minus the Winds!
80s possible tomorrow; showers close by this weekend
FORECAST IN DETAIL
The sunshine will be out in full force today, but, thankfully, winds will be nearly calm. Southerly winds on Friday will bring much warmer temperatures, around 80 or even higher. Both Saturday and Sunday should feature at least some sun, cooler temperatures, with a slight chance of showers either day. The same general pattern lingers on Columbus Day Monday: a mix of clouds and sun and a slight chance of a shower.
Today (Thursday): We are treated to mostly sunny skies and near-normal temperatures in the low 70s today. The big surprise, though, will be the almost total dearth of wind in stark contrast to yesterday; light westerly breeze of 5-10 mph will about do it.
Tonight: Clouds will be on the increase tonight as a warm front scoots through. I cannot entirely rule out a passing shower -- but there's only a 20% chance. Overnight lows in most areas will be in the mid-50s. Confidence: Medium-High

Tomorrow (Friday): A cold front approaching from the west, as well as high pressure moving offshore, will allow for southerly winds (of 10-15 mph) on Friday to push the mercury close to 80 or even higher most places -- with a few mid-80s within reach. This, despite a good deal of cloud cover mixed in with the sun. Confidence: Medium-High
Tomorrow Night: Mostly cloudy skies are expected Friday night, with a 30% chance of some showers late at night and towards morning as a cold front moves in. It will be breezy, too, with southwest winds of 10-20 mph at times. Mild overnight lows only drop to the low 60s for most spots. Confidence: Medium-High
Weather on Saturday, at this point, looks okay but not great. I anticipate we'll see more in the way of clouds than sun. Temperatures won't be nearly as warm, either -- near 70 for highs. A few showers may linger into the morning (20%) with a cold front around, mainly south and southeast. The overnight period will be partly cloudy and much cooler, with lows ranging from the mid-to-upper 40s in the cooler spots to the low 50s downtown. Confidence: Medium
On Sunday, I think we'll see a pretty even blend of clouds and sun. We'll have to keep our eyes out for an area of precipitation to that currently looks like it will scoot to our south. That forecast could change though. It will be cooler still, with highs in the mid-60s and overnight lows in the mid-40s. Confidence: Medium
The outlook for Columbus Day Monday is for partly sunny skies and cool temperatures. Afternoon highs probably won't make it much milder than about 60. Once again, I hesitate not to mention a slight (25%) chance of a shower during the day, but no organized rain-maker is expected. Cool overnight, again, with lows in the 40s. Confidence: Low-Medium
