Forecast: Warm weather to stage short comeback
Spotty showers in the mix this weekend
FORECAST IN DETAIL
By David Streit, CWG Meteorologist
For those of you who refused to turn your heat on the past few days, your reward is finally here. Today turns out slightly warmer than normal and best of all humidity won't be a factor. Tomorrow checks in warmer and muggier but it will feel good to many after the recent cool snap and will only stick around one day. Temperatures cool off a little this weekend, ranking close to perfection in the pleasant 70s. The only problem is the risk of showers Saturday and Sunday afternoons.
Today (Thursday): Temperatures rise quickly and humidity does not, my favorite. Sunny skies and very light breezes from the north make this an outdoorsy day. Morning readings in the 60s jump to the 70s with warmer spots peaking in the lower 80s. Confidence: High
Tonight: Mostly clear and calm conditions allow temperatures to slip from the upper 70s to the upper 60s during the evening. That should keep the sidewalk café tables busy. Overnight lows slip to the 50s in most spots - but only to 60 or so downtown. Confidence: High
Keep reading for the forecast through Monday....
Tomorrow (Friday): Another rapid warm up pushes readings from the 60s through the 70s in the morning. Mid-to-upper 80s reign supreme in the afternoon. Humidity levels slip higher but nothing like the heart of summer. Breezes barely whisper from the south. Blue skies do give way to some high clouds by afternoon. Confidence: High
Tomorrow Night: This promises to be a warm evening so dress lightly as those 80s only grudgingly fall into the 70s, with 60s reserved for the after midnight crowd. Clouds increase but dry weather prevails. Confidence: High
Saturday gets tricky as a weakening storm in the Midwest approaches. This keeps skies mostly cloudy and raises the threat of widely scattered, light showers (40% chance) by mid-day and through the evening. Keeping with our drier than normal year so far, this is probably no washout. Temperatures are pleasant enough with highs in the mid-70s. Confidence: Medium
Some breaks in the clouds are expected Sunday (especially in the morning) but there's a 40% risk of showers and thundershowers in the afternoon. Temperatures are nice though, starting the day in the lower 60s and reaching the mid-70s by early afternoon. Odds are that the evening will be dry but keep the umbrella handy just in case. Confidence: Medium
We won't be able to entirely shake the cloud cover Monday with breezes coming in from the northeast, keeping a moist fetch off the Atlantic. No rain is expected. Temperatures remain enjoyable with mid-70s dominant. Confidence: Low-Medium
