PM Update: Warmth Now, Some Showers Later

By Ian Livingston

AM showers possible Saturday; Sunday and beyond?

Today featured a brief return to late-summerlike warmth across the area. Plentiful sunshine -- mixed with winds from the south and southwest -- has allowed temperatures to rise into the low-and-mid 80s many spots. These high temperatures are a good 10 to sometimes 15 degrees above normal. Enjoy the warmth the rest of the afternoon and evening, some of the coolest weather of the fall is around the corner as we get toward and past Columbus Day.

Through Tonight: Clouds increase again through the evening and some showers are possible late (after 9 p.m. or so), but the main threat should come with the frontal passage after midnight. Either way, not a lot of rain will fall and some places will get nothing, but hopefully a little moisture will fall on spots that have been dry lately. Lows won't get much lower than 60 in the suburbs to 65 in the city.

Tomorrow (Saturday): Behind the front, cooler air filtering in during the day will keep temperatures from rising too much. Also, the front may hang up somewhere close by to the south, so we could still see clouds and some showers, especially in the morning in southern and eastern sections. Areas further north and west will be first to clear and see the most sun. Highs mainly range from the mid-60s to near 70.

Gorgeous day, probably the last time we see 85 this year.
