FORECAST IN DETAIL
At least after suffering through the hottest summer on record, October is rewarding us with a stretch of beautiful weather. Following a not-too-shabby Thursday and Friday, each day of our holiday weekend stands to be outstanding though clouds and showers could move in by Columbus Day evening.
Today (Saturday): It's cool if you're up and out early - with 40s in some of the suburbs. But the warm sun pushes temps all the way back up to near 80 by mid-afternoon. Winds are from the northwest at 5-10 mph. Confidence: High
Tonight: A weak cold front drops down from the north, but as it's very moisture limited, don't expect more than a few clouds. Lows drop from the mid-40s in the cooler suburbs to the low 50s downtown. Confidence: High
Keep reading for the forecast into early next week...
Tomorrow (Sunday): Behind Saturday night's gentle cold front, temps drop just a hair. Winds come around from out of the north which limits highs to the mid-70s despite sunny skies. Confidence: Medium-High
Tomorrow Night: Clear and cool with lows ranging from the mid-40s in the cooler suburbs to the low-to-mid 50s downtown. Confidence: Medium-High
High pressure and a light west wind mean warmth for a good part of Columbus Day (Monday). However, a cold front sliding into the region late in the day will probably increase clouds and could (30% chance) produce a few showers, mainly at night. The front slinks slowly south Tuesday continuing shower chances (40%). Highs are in the low 80s Monday and 70s Tuesday, with overnight lows in the 50s. Confidence: Low-Medium
