Forecast: A bright start to a mostly bright week
FORECAST IN DETAIL
Mother nature often has a nice way of evening things out. Last week tended to be cloudy, this week will tend to be mostly sunny. Highs temperatures will average out at typical mid-November levels or a tad warmer -- with highs mainly in the upper 50s and low 60s. The best (only?) chance of rain this week will be late Wednesday into Thursday, and even then odds aren't great.
Today (Monday): Thanks to a breeze from the north, it won't be as delightfully warm as yesterday (when highs reached the low 70s), but we're still looking at pretty fine mid-November day. Under mostly sunny skies (after perhaps some brief morning fog), temperatures should reach the mid-60s. Confidence: High
Tonight: Bank on a mostly clear and seasonably cool evening. Temperatures will range from mid-30s in the colder suburbs (with scattered frost) to the low 40s downtown. Confidence: Medium-High

Tomorrow (Tuesday): Cool air will continue to filter into the region on a breeze from the north (at about 10 mph), so high temperatures will drop another 5-8 degrees (or about 15 degrees from Sunday). Though we'll still have considerable sunshine, highs will only reach the mid-to-upper 50s. Confidence: Medium-High
Tomorrow Night: Another cool night is in store with some increasing clouds possible. Lows will range from the mid-30s in the colder suburbs to the low 40s downtown. Confidence: Medium-High
Clouds may increase some ahead an area of low pressure to our west on Wednesday . But with high pressure remaining to our north, we should hold onto at least partial sunshine. Highs will likely be right around average, in the upper 50s. Mostly cloudy skies are probable overnight, with a 30% chance of light rain by morning, with lows in the 40s. Confidence: Low-Medium
As an area of low pressure passes to our north Thursday and Thursday night, we'll have a 30% of showers. Under mostly cloudy skies, highs should be around 60, with lows Thursday night in the 40s to near 50. Confidence: Low-Medium
Right now the period spanning Friday through Sunday appears tranquil. Sunshine looks like a fair bet all three days with highs in the upper 50s to low 60s, and overnight lows from the mid-30s to mid-40s (suburbs to city). Confidence: Medium
