Forecast: About as nice as November gets
Enjoy the next few days, changes are afoot
FORECAST IN DETAIL
I love snow and winter holds a special place because of it, but I could easily live with days like this all year (our traffic might take a beating though). Chilled mornings, mixed with near-peak color, are a good reminder of the season, and we probably need some reminders during the relatively warm midday sun. Soak it up today and tomorrow, because even though it's our 6th dry weekend in a row, darker and stormier skies can't be that far off.
Today (Saturday): If you're out early for coffee and a paper you'll run into crisp air. As the sun climbs higher, a glorious day unfolds. Look for readings at least into the mid-60s. Highs have run a bit warm all week, so a few upper 60s seem like a decent bet. Wind? Not a lot. Confidence: High
Tonight: The atmosphere is still pretty dry and skies stay clear, so daytime warmth fades fast. Temperatures drop back through the 50s after sunset on their way to low in the 30s for the suburbs to the lower 40s downtown. Confidence: High
You know it can't stay this pleasant forever. What's up with the next few days? Also, check in with your thoughts on this pleasant day!
Tomorrow (Sunday): Temperatures once again shoot off morning lows and up into the 60s under mostly sunny skies. This looks like another day where warm does well, though wind direction may cap us. Mid-60s seems like a good bet again, perhaps some more upper 60s. Clouds should mainly hold off 'til near or after dark. Confidence: Medium-High
Tomorrow Night: A weak cold front arrives from the west, bringing partly-to-mostly cloudy skies. Clouds and a slight increase in surface humidity keep minimums up. Near 40 in the cold spots to the mid-40s downtown. Confidence: Medium-High
Monday is a transitional day as the cold front gets hung up around here. Clouds are more numerous than this weekend and temperatures cooler as well, but it's still mild for this time of year with highs near or above 60. By the start of Tuesday, our monotonous weather looks to come to a halt. Right now, it seems a winter-like storm will gather in or near the Gulf of Mexico and move up the East Coast. A risk of showers late-night and into the morning becomes a threat for general rain as the day progresses. Highs in the 50s. Confidence: Medium
