FORECAST IN DETAIL
One thing about this time of year: The cloudy stretches can be rather cool, kind of depressing and slow to clear. But once they do, it can get real nice, real fast. That's exactly what we should see as the clouds and occasional showers around since Sunday make way for a series of sunnier and warmer days starting tomorrow -- in plenty of time for a nice holiday weekend.
Today (Wednesday): This will be the last of our current streak of cool and partly to mostly cloudy days. Highs should be similar to yesterday, only managing the low-to-mid 60s. An upper-level area of low pressure still spinning above us may produce some light showers, primarily from mid-afternoon into evening (about a 40% chance of at least a sprinkle at any given location). Confidence: Medium
Tonight: Any light showers around during the evening (40% chance of at least a sprinkle wherever you happen to be) should dry up overnight as skies begin to clear in response to the upper-level low pulling away to the northeast. Lows are mainly from the upper 40s (suburbs) to low 50s (downtown). Confidence: Medium
Keep reading for the forecast through the Columbus Day weekend....
Tomorrow (Thursday): Skies should be at least partly sunny as higher pressure begins to build in. Temperatures are warmer, too, with highs from near 70 to the mid-70s. But 10-20 mph winds from the west/northwest (with some higher gusts) will make it feel a bit cooler than that. Confidence: Medium
Tomorrow Night: Winds relax, and under mostly clear skies lows drop to the mid-40s in the suburbs to the low 50s in the city. Confidence: Medium-High
Friday through Monday (Columbus Day) should be one of the finest stretches of weather we've seen so far this fall. High pressure delivers partly to mostly sunny skies and highs in the glorious 70s to near 80. Lows range from the mid-40s to near 50 in the suburbs to the 50s downtown. Confidence: Medium-High
