FORECAST IN DETAIL

We're looking at a pretty nice late fall weekend. Sunshine will radiate through the skies today, and though clouds increase tomorrow, odds are increasing it will remain dry. The ugly, damp weather may wait to arrive until Sunday night and Monday.

Today (Saturday): No doubt the day will start off chilly, with 30s in many suburbs. But sunshine, filtered at times by clouds, will go to work, lifting temperatures through the 40s in the morning. Afternoon temperatures will reach the upper 50s and even the low 60s in a few spots. Winds will generally be light. Confidence: High

Tonight: Skies will be partly cloudy for most of the night. Lows will range from the upper 30s in the cooler suburbs to the mid-40s downtown. Confidence: Medium-High

Tomorrow (Sunday): There's a decent chance we'll awake to at least partial sunshine but clouds will gradually filter in throughout the morning. By afternoon, it should become mostly cloudy, but any rain should hold off until evening. Highs should generally be in the mid-50s. Confidence: Medium

Tomorrow Night: Weak low pressure to the south will slowly move towards the region with patchy light rain possibly (40% chance) overspreading the region. Lows will generally be in the mid-to-upper 40s. Confidence: Medium

A LOOK AHEAD

Occasional light rain is likely Monday and Monday night as low pressure very slowly moves northeast. It will be raw, with highs 50-55 and lows in the mid-40s. Confidence: Medium

Rain ends early Tuesday with gradual clearing during the day. Highs should be rather seasonable -- in the upper 50s. Confidence: Medium

Comments

It has been noted that skies are cloudier today than originally forecast. We seem to be hung up under an unusually persistent cloud layer.

Tomorrow will be cloudy for a somewhat different reason: the approaching low pressure from our southwest.
