FORECAST IN DETAIL
Whatever we did to get these beautiful weekends we've been having, let's not change anything. Another gem concludes today with nearly ideal fall weather. We'll see a bit more in the way of clouds today but stay dry. With highs in the 70s, I'll take a few clouds if I have to. As we move into the work week, flow from the south ahead of a rather potent low-pressure system keeps us nice and warm, but with partly to mostly cloudy skies and sporadic rain chances at least until after a cold front comes through late Wednesday.
Today (Sunday): Today gets a guarded "Nice Day" declaration as we could see some clouds from time to time. Still, for late October, highs in the mid-70s with a good deal of sun is plenty nice. Winds blow from the south at 5-10 mph. Confidence: Medium-High
Tonight: We'll begin our respite from the chilly overnights that we've had recently. Evening temperatures are comfortable, falling through the 60s. Overnight, lows in the 50s are mild-ish as skies remain partly cloudy with light winds from the south. Confidence: High

Tomorrow (Monday): As skies become mostly cloudy, the bright spot is that any rain should hold off until later in the afternoon, when we'll see a 40% chance for some light showers. Even with the clouds, we should make the low-to-mid 70s in most locales. Winds continue from the south around 5-10 mph, increasing our humidity to somewhat noticeable levels. Confidence: Medium
Tomorrow Night: Shower chances stay in the forecast at around 40%. Expect any showers to be scattered and on the light side. With mostly cloudy skies, overnight lows only drop to the upper 50s to low 60s. Confidence: Medium
A warm front pushes well north of us Tuesday leaving us partly sunny, warm, and pretty humid for October. Highs at least to the mid-70s are accompanied by the chance of a few isolated showers or thunderstorms. Rather muggy conditions continue overnight with lows in the 60s. Confidence: Medium
Wednesday, if a cold front approaching from the west hangs back to the west (along the Appalachians) through morning and early afternoon, then we might see enough sun and strong enough breezes from the south to push highs to near or past 80. If it moves east a little more quickly, then increased clouds could hold highs to the mid-to-upper 70s. A line of showers and maybe thunderstorms is possible as the cold front sweeps through during the afternoon into evening. Confidence: Low-Medium
Though the cold front has moved past by Thursday, the cold air behind it runs a bit late, leaving us with a fairly pleasant day as skies clear and highs reach the 70s. A weak wave along the front to our south may throw a shower or two our way late. Confidence: Low-Medium
