FORECAST IN DETAIL
Commute cautiously this morning but know that your evening commute will be much better. Our wintry mix moves out this afternoon and any accumulations should be light enough to have little impact by the time you wrap up the work week. Saturday offers a brief respite from the unsettled weather. But Sunday turns on us quickly, with rain for most of the day -- but not cold, at least.
Today (Friday): It's a little sloppy this morning, so be careful. After our wet & wintry storm departs during the early-to-mid afternoon, expect temperatures to climb just a bit, into the mid-to-upper 30s. Most roads should be just fine for the evening commute. Confidence: Medium
Tonight: Partial clearing with a light wind from the north. By dawn, temperatures cool off to the mid-20s (coldest suburbs) to low 30s (downtown). Confidence: High

Tomorrow (Saturday): A chance to dry out with mostly sunny skies through the morning and highs on their way to the mid-40s -- right about average. Breezes will be light, out of the easterly direction. As our Sunday storm system approaches the region, some high clouds are likely to stream overhead during the afternoon. Confidence: Medium-High
Tomorrow Night: We should stay dry through most if not all of the night. So, nothing to worry about in terms of Saturday evening plans. Not a terribly chilly night, either, with lows in the mid-30s under partly to mostly cloudy skies. Maybe some low 30s with enough breaks up in the clouds. Confidence: Medium
Sunday: Expect periods of steady rain starting in the morning or by around midday and lasting into the evening. The upside will be fairly mild highs in the low 50s. Chance of rain is a fairly confident 60-70%. Ready the umbrellas and rain gear. Confidence: Medium
Periods of rain probably continue into Sunday night but may taper toward morning. Still mild with lows in the upper 40s. Confidence: Low-Medium
Mild conditions are expected to continue on Monday with any lingering rain ending in the morning and eventually some sunshine possible with highs in the 50s. Confidence: Low-Medium
Quiet weather should persist into Tuesday with at least partly sunny skies and highs in the mid-40s to near 50. Confidence: Low-Medium
