FORECAST IN DETAIL
A nice day to get your Preak on! Sunny and, thankfully, dry weather returns to us today in the wake of yesterday's heat, humidity and thunderstorms. High pressure builds in overhead to deliver an almost perfect spring Saturday. Clouds may increase some on Sunday but temperatures remain pleasant. Alas, as if heading back to work wasn't enough of a downer, showers and cooler temperatures look to dampen the forecast Monday and Tuesday.
Today (Saturday): Yesterday's thunderstorms and humidity are long gone, cleared out by an overnight cold front. What remains behind is quite a nice day. Mostly sunny skies help morning temperatures rise through the 60s, and afternoon highs hit the upper 70s to near 80. Other than a brisk breeze from the northwest at 10-20 mph, not a bad start to the weekend. Confidence: High
Tonight: We'll see partly cloudy skies for the most part. Some of our more southern readers may tend toward mostly cloudy due to the cold front stalled near the VA/NC border. A good night to sleep with the windows open, as a light but steady breeze and the scattered clouds prevent us from getting too chilly. Overnight lows likely reach the mid-50s in the 'burbs, and the upper 50s for the city. Confidence: High
Does the nice weather hold? Keep reading for the forecast into next week...
Tomorrow (Sunday): The weekend looks to conclude with another pleasant spring day. Though don't be surprised if a layer of high clouds filter the sun. Afternoon highs should still manage the low-to-mid 70s. An associated shower or sprinkle is possible in the afternoon (20% chance) . Confidence: Medium
Tomorrow Night: Clouds start to thicken overnight and shower chances increase slightly to around 30%, as low pressure and an associated warm front begin to approach from the southwest. Overnight lows should again be in the mid-to-upper 50s. Confidence: Medium
Not the best way to begin a new week on Monday as weak high pressure to the north valiantly fights a losing battle against the approaching low. Gray skies keep highs to the mid-to-upper 60s as rain chances increase from around 30% in the morning to about 50% in the afternoon. Rain is likely Monday night -- a pretty good one to stay in -- with lows in the mid-50s. Confidence: Medium
Tuesday doesn't look so hot either. Shower chances remain in the forecast (60-70%) as a new area of low pressure tries to form off the coast. Highs remain below normal, probably in the mid-60s to near 70. Confidence: Medium
