FORECAST IN DETAIL
Breezes from the west really warm us up today ahead of a cold front approaching from our northwest. The best chance of showers and storms associated with the front conveniently waits until later this evening into the overnight, and the rain threat should quickly diminish as we get into the weekend. While both Saturday and Sunday will be dramatically cooler than today, with sometimes gusty winds to boot, times of sun may still make the outdoors somewhat inviting.
Today (Friday): Nice 'n warm! This will be our last day of above-average temperatures for a while. With plenty of morning & midday sun, highs should reach the low 80s, maybe even mid-80s. From around mid-afternoon onward, clouds could start to increase and winds from the west may gust to near 25 mph -- all this as a cold front approaches from the northwest. There's an outside risk (~20% chance) of a shower or thunderstorm after about 5 p.m. Confidence: Medium-High
Tonight: Skies really cloud over during the evening with the chance of showers or thunderstorms increasing to around 40-50% after 9 p.m. or so, before decreasing toward dawn. Evening temperatures will be mild, falling through the 70s into the 60s, then to lows in the 50s by sunrise. Breezy conditions continue through the night with gusts to around 25-30 mph (possibly higher inside or around any storms). Confidence: Medium
Showers won't ruin my weekend, right? Keep reading for the forecast into next week...
Tomorrow (Saturday): Perhaps a few lingering showers through early-to-mid morning (25% chance). But for the most part, it's a partly sunny, cool and windy day. With 15-25 mph winds from the northwest, and gusts to near 35 mph, highs in the low 60s should fall some 20 degrees short of today's. Overall, a salvageable day if you dress appropriately. With the cooler air, it can be easy to forget about UV & pollen levels, both of which should be on the high side. Confidence: Medium-High
Tomorrow Night: Plan for a pretty cool evening, at least compared to recent ones, as temperatures drop through the 50s and winds stay breezy, though less so than earlier in the day. Overnight lows cool to the upper 30s to low 40s in the suburbs, low-to-mid 40s downtown, under partly cloudy skies. Confidence: Medium-High
Sunday: Don't let the partly to mostly sunny skies fool ya. Temperatures will struggle through the 50s to highs in the upper 50s to near 60. Those winds from the northwest dont quite go away, either, blowing around 10-20 mph. Confidence: High
Partly cloudy skies greet our Sunday night with lows in the upper 30s to mid-40s (suburbs-city). Confidence: Medium-High
Continued cool on Monday & Tuesday with partly to mostly sunny skies and highs in the low-to-mid 60s. Though it's hard to complain about temperatures a few degrees below normal considering the fair amount of well-above-normal days we've had this spring. Confidence: Medium
