FORECAST IN DETAIL
Well, it was nice while it lasted. A few days without the threat of storms and temperatures not threatening triple digits seemed almost out of place didn't it? While we won't be seeing any 100s (probably not even 90s) anytime soon, the risk of showers and thunderstorms does return at times today into the first half of the work week, though temperatures near to below average should limit the chances of anything severe.
Today (Sunday): Unsettled weather returns today as a cold front slides across the area. Not expecting a washout, and some places may only see a light shower or could miss out entirely on precipitation. But overall, there's a 50% chance of showers throughout the day, and possibly thundershowers in the afternoon. Skies are mostly cloudy and humidity is high with highs in the mid-80s. Afternoon breezes pick up from the west as the front passes. Confidence: Medium
Tonight: The shower threat pretty much comes to an end (just a slight chance during the evening). Skies should clear some as well -- we'll call it partly cloudy -- though some patchy fog is possible. Light breezes from the northwest are a sign of a bit drier air moving in. Lows in the upper 60s to near 70 in the suburbs, and low 70s downtown. Confidence: Medium
How do you rank today's weather? Vote your call for today's 'Digit' (see Daily Digit box above). And keep reading for the forecast through midweek...
Tomorrow (Monday): The cold front is gone and humidity is a little lower, but an area of low pressure high up in the atmoshphere keeps us mostly cloudy with a 40% chance of showers and possibly a thunderstorm or two. Most of whatever rain there is should hold off until afternoon. Highs are stunted in the low-to-mid 80s. Confidence: Low-Medium
Tomorrow Night: We'll continue to stay questionable through the evening and overnight with a 30% chance of showers. Lows drop back to the mid-60s to low 70s with mostly cloudy skies above. Confidence: Medium
Tuesday, that upper-level low pressure hangs around, as do shower and thunderstorm chances at around 30-40%. A lot of clouds limit highs to the quite cool mid-70s to near 80. Rain chances diminish Tuesday night with lows in the 60s. Confidence: Low-Medium
Wednesday brings with it a less dreary forecast -- increased sun, decreased rain chances, and more summery highs in the 80s. Confidence: Medium
