Forecast: A brief reprieve from the rain
Showers likely again Sunday
FORECAST IN DETAIL
Sandwiched between yesterday's and tomorrow's rain, we have a sunny Saturday. The rain tomorrow may not really ramp up until the afternoon, but there's the potential for a good amount of it, especially tomorrow night. The beginning of next week will bring gradual drying and gradual cooling.
Today (Saturday): Lots of sunshine and not much in the way of wind today under high pressure. A slight chill will remain in the air, however, with afternoon highs only in the mid-40s or so. Confidence: High
Tonight: Mostly clear skies early will yield to some increase in cloud cover overnight. Low temperatures will range from around 30 in the colder suburbs to the mid-30s downtown. Confidence: Medium
Keep reading for the forecast through early next week...
Tomorrow (Sunday): Strong flow from the south will give temperatures a boost, quickly rising through the 40s during the morning. Afternoon highs will reach the low-to-mid 50s at the same time moisture ahead of strong cold front streams in from the south and west. Consequently, showers will increase in coverage as the afternoon wears on, with the chance of rain at 60-70%. Confidence: Medium-High
Tomorrow Night: Rain is a virtual certainty overnight as the cold front plows through the metro region. The rain may be heavy at times, with a chance of embedded thunderstorms. Temperatures will not fall off much, with lows 45-50. Rainfall totals may reach 1-2 inches. Confidence: Medium-High
The cold front clears the region Monday morning, shutting off the rain. Monday will be breezy, with temperatures not warming up significantly in the afternoon, despite some glimpses of sunshine. Highs should be in the mid-50s. Much cooler air starts to work its way back into the region Monday night, with lows in the mid-30s. A brief shower or snow flurry cannot be ruled out as an upper level disturbance swings through. Confidence: Medium
Flow from the northwest on Tuesday will bring partly sunny, dry, but chilly conditions. Highs will be in the low-to-mid 40s, but it will feel colder than that given some gusty winds. Confidence: Medium
