If you're stuck at work this afternoon, the scene outside is surely difficult to resist. Sparkling sunshine and glorious blue skies fill the air with temperatures in the mid-to-upper 70s. Cloudless skies continue into the evening as the mercury descends into the 60s by 7 or 8 p.m.

Through Tonight: Although it was warm and comfy this afternoon, it turns chilly or "crisp" by late tonight. Skies are clear with lows from the low-to-mid 40s in the cooler suburbs to the low 50s downtown.

Tomorrow (Saturday): The best weather weekend of the fall thus far commences. Abundant and extensive sunshine quickly warms the region through the 50s and 60s in the morning. Afternoon temps climb through the 70s all the way to near 80 in many spots. Winds are light from the west.
