FORECAST IN DETAIL
Spring officially arrives today at 1:32 p.m. and what a day and what a weekend to welcome it. For the 16th straight day, temperatures will be above average -- but unlike last Saturday when we were socked in with clouds and rain, today we'll bask in sunshine. Though sunshine will be less dominant tomorrow, we're still looking at much-above-average warmth. Rain is likely Monday, but that's a small price to pay for this glorious weekend.
Today (Saturday): After several days of beautiful weather like this, we're running out of superlatives to describe these days. Much like yesterday, expect mostly sunny skies as temperatures climb into the low and even mid-70s. Allergy sufferers, the pollen count will be medium to high, so have the antihistamines handy. Winds will be from the west and light, at around 5-10 mph. Confidence: High
Tonight: We may have a few clouds around which will make it a little milder than previous nights. Lows will range from near 50 downtown to the mid-40s in the cooler suburbs. Confidence: Medium-High
Keep reading for the forecast through early next week...
Tomorrow (Sunday): We'll have our fifth straight day meeting "nice day" criteria as conditions will remain mild and at least partly sunny. Clouds will probably become more prevalent in the afternoon. By early evening somebody could see a sprinkle or light shower (20% chance), but most spots will be dry with highs near 70 or into the low 70s. Winds will be from the south and light at around 5 to 10 mph. Confidence: Medium-High
Tomorrow Night: Rain showers are likely (60% chance) to develop after midnight. Temperatures will be mild with lows in the low 50s. Confidence: Medium-High
Periods of rain are a strong possibility on Monday with even a chance of some embedded thundershowers as an energetic area of low pressure swings through the area. Highs will be in the low 60s. Showers may continue Monday night but should become more scattered and intermittent, with lows in the 40s. Confidence: Medium-High
The area of low pressure will be a little sluggish in pulling away Tuesday so considerable cloud cover should stick around. Rain chances should be mainly in the early morning (40-50% chance) though an isolated shower is possible in the afternoon (30% chance). It will be cooler, with highs in the 50s. Confidence: Medium
