FORECAST IN DETAIL
I suppose that it's only natural that after a summer where the buzzwords were "hot" and "dry" that we head into October with "cool" and "wet". Building cloudiness today signals the arrival of a pesky coastal low that spins showers and breezy conditions beginning this evening and continuing into early Tuesday. Nature has a way of balancing out though, and by the second half of the week, we're looking at a few days of fantastic fall weather.
Today (Sunday): Winds coming from the east/northeast means that today will be quite different from yesterday's fall tranquility. Clouds build overhead but we should be able to hold off most of the rain until until late in the afternoon, when some lighter showers or drizzle are possible (30%). Temperatures are held in check by the increasing clouds, only reaching the low-to-mid 60s. Confidence: Medium-High
Tonight: With steadier, light rain moving into the area during the evening hours, we're looking at a rather gloomy October evening: Cloudy, showers, drizzle, chilly temperatures, and turning breezy. Temperatures will fall to near 50 degrees overnight, and winds will be from the northeast at 10-20 mph. Confidence: Medium
Keep reading for the forecast into next week...
Tomorrow (Monday): With a coastal low not going anywhere in a hurry, showers stick around to dampen the new work week. In addition to the umbrella, you may want to bring a light jacket with you as our highs only reach the mid-to-upper 50s. We'll still have some breezy conditions as well with a wind from the north at 15-20 mph. All in all, a very raw day. Confidence: Medium
Tomorrow Night: Showers likely begin to diminish as we head into Monday night as they move northward out of the area. Skies continue to be mostly cloudy and lows are chilly once again, in the upper 40s to around 50 in the city. Confidence: Medium
Tuesday, aside from a stray shower, should show some slight improvement. We'll dry out through the day, with mostly cloudy morning skies turning partly sunny by days' end. It remains on the cool side, with highs in the mid-60s.
Overnight, we'll see partly-to-mostly cloudy skies, and lows from the mid-40s to near 50. Confidence: Medium
Wednesday continues our gradual return to more pleasant conditions. Chances for a stray shower or two remain, but we should begin to see a bit more sun under variably cloudy skies. Afternoon highs should reach the mid-60s. Overnight sees partly cloudy and chilly conditions, with lows in mid-to-upper 40s. Confidence: Medium
Thursday looks like we may need to break out the "nice day sun", and we're all too happy to do it. Bright, mostly sunny skies warm us up to a more comfortable afternoon high in the low-to-mid 70s. Confidence: Medium
