FORECAST IN DETAIL
How about, instead of searing heat or flooding rain, we have some tranquil and enjoyable fall weather? Today, at least, delivers that to us. Sunday is less serene as clouds increase and some light rain potentially breaks out by the afternoon. Sunday night into Monday looks like another washout, but nothing like what we experienced Thursday. Unsettled, cool weather may persist through Tuesday.
Today (Saturday): If only every day of fall could be like this. Sunshine fills the delightfully crisp autumn air with just some scattered pop up clouds in the afternoon. Highs reach right around 70 with winds from the north at 5-10 mph. Confidence: Medium-High
Tonight: Skies are clear early, allowing temperatures to take a quick tumble. Later at night, some high clouds may move in, slowing the mercury's descent. Still, lows are chilly -- ranging from the low-to-mid 40s in the cooler suburbs to the low 50s downtown. Confidence: Medium-High
Keep reading for the forecast into early next week...
Tomorrow (Sunday): As low pressure develops off the North Carolina coast, a wind from the northeast blows in and clouds increase. By afternoon, mainly from mid-afternoon onward, there's a 50-60% chance of light rain. The clouds and possible rain hold down temps, with cool highs only near 60 to the low 60s. Confidence: Medium
Tomorrow Night: Rain is likely (60-70% chance) overnight as low pressure slowly moves north. Lows are near 50. Confidence: Medium
Rain continues through at least part of Monday as the coastal low pressure system slowly treks northward. By afternoon or evening rain may taper off from southwest to northeast. Highs are chilly, in the mid-50s to near 60. Variably cloudy and cool Monday night with a chance of a lingering shower and lows 45 to 50. It's early to be projecting rainfall totals, but there's potential for another 1" or so of rain. Confidence: Low-Medium
Though the main storm pushes well north of the region by Tuesday, a stubborn upper level low pressure area probably keep it mostly cloudy, breezy, and cool with highs in the low 60s. Confidence: Low-Medium
