FORECAST IN DETAIL
Rain tomorrow, and wind Friday into Saturday. That sums up the disruptive portion of the forecast for the next several days. Otherwise, we'll see plenty of sun and cooler temperatures than we've seen the past week or so, though fairly typical for mid-October. Let's get to the nitty-gritty details...
Today (Wednesday): High pressure should hold its ground long enough for a mostly sunny day as Thursday's storm starts to get organized to our west. We're substantially cooler than the past few days, thanks to the passage of yesterday's cold front, with highs in the upper 60s to near 70 and light winds from the northeast and east. Confidence: Medium-High
Tonight: Skies become increasingly cloudy and a shower is possible overnight, especially west of town. The clouds should keep temperatures from dropping too far -- lows in the mid-50s (downtown) to near 50 (suburbs). Confidence: Medium
Keep reading for the forecast through the weekend...
Tomorrow (Thursday): Rain arrives from west to east during the early-to-mid morning, and falls moderate at times before tapering in the same direction during the mid-afternoon into early evening. Rainfall potential is around 0.5"-1". The rain and overcast skies halt highs in the upper 50s to low 60s, and breezes pick up from the west later in the afternoon or by evening. Confidence: Medium
Tomorrow Night: The rain should be mostly done by around mid-evening, though a shower or two may linger after. Clearing skies work in overnight as winds become gusty from the west and lows drop to the 40s. Confidence: Medium
Friday brings a partly sunny and quite windy end to the work week. Gusts probably over 30 mph add a chill to highs from near 60 to the mid-60s. Could see an isolated afternoon or evening shower. Friday night lows bottom in the 40s (suburbs) to near 50 (downtown). Confidence: Medium
Gusty breezes persist Saturday with similar highs -- near 60 to the mid-60s -- under partly to mostly sunny skies. Lows cool off to the 40s Saturday night. Confidence: Medium-High
Sunday should continue to deliver plenty of sun, which coupled with lighter winds and highs in the upper 60s to low 70s should make for a great end to the weekend. Confidence: Medium
