FORECAST IN DETAIL
Finally, we have a fairly "normal" Monday weatherwise. Two Mondays ago, the high was an unseasonably chilly 56; last Monday, it was a sizzling 88. The average of those two is in the low 70s, just shy of the forecast high today and the "normal" high for the date in the upper 60s. Who said mother nature doesn't have a way of evening things out? The balance of the upcoming week features average weather, with highs in the 60s and lows in the 40s. Rain chances are modest, and mainly confined to late tonight and tomorrow.
Today (Monday): The day begins with considerable sunshine and skies should remain mostly clear into the afternoon. Some high clouds may stream in late, but not before temperatures reach the high 60s. Winds are from the north around 10 mph. Confidence: Medium-High
Tonight: Clouds lower and thicken as a weak disturbance approaches from the northwest. There's a slight (20-30%) chance of light rain after midnight, especially in the northern suburbs (30-40% chance). Lows range from the mid-40s to around 50 (downtown). Confidence: Medium
Keep reading for the forecast through next weekend...
Tomorrow (Tuesday): A little light rain may (30% chance) dampen the early morning hours (especially north of Montgomery county), before a break from mid-morning through at least mid-afternoon. Then, another batch of rain may (30% chance) enter the region in the late afternoon -- especially in the southwest suburbs. Mostly cloudy skies throughout the day hold high temps in the low 60s. Confidence: Medium
Tomorrow Night: Light rain is possible (40-50% chance) as a wave of low pressure passes by just to our south. The steadiest rain probably falls south of Fredericksburg, with rain diminishing in coverage and intensity to the north. Lows range from the mid-40s to near 50 under generally cloudy skies. Confidence: Medium
Light rain could linger into Wednesday morning, especially to the south and southeast. During the afternoon, skies likely brighten, with highs topping out in the low-to-mid 60s. Clearing and cool Wednesday night, with lows in the 40s. Confidence: Medium
A sprawling area of high pressure settles over the region for the period Thursday through Sunday establishing a tranquil, seasonable weather pattern. Days are mostly sunny and mild, with highs in the mid-60s, while nights are clear and cool, with lows in the mid-30s to mid-40s. Some of the coldest suburbs could see some frost during this stretch. Confidence: Medium
