Forecast: Another dry weekend for the area
Seesaw ride of temperatures next several days
FORECAST IN DETAIL
So far, my run as a Saturday forecaster has been fairly simple in the nearer term. This is my third forecast for a dry weekend and the 7th dry weekend in a row for the area. We're on a bit of a seesaw ride the next few days though. It's fairly mild -- if also breezy -- today, then cooler tomorrow. We go back up to more mild temperatures on Monday and Tuesday, then back down again... Perhaps way down into the holiday period.
Today (Saturday): Sunshine goes to work on chilly morning temperatures and we climb to highs a few degrees above average. That translates to afternoon readings near 60 across the area. A light breeze from the west early in the day increases a bit during the afternoon, sustained around 10 mph with gusts toward 20 mph. Confidence: High
Tonight: It starts mostly clear and temperatures quickly fall. A cold front passes through with a few more clouds compared to recent nights, and this helps keep temperatures up slightly. Look for lows maybe down into the mid-30s in the coldest locations to the lower 40s downtown. Confidence: High
Not a bad weekend overall? How much warmer will it be early week? Keep on reading...
Tomorrow (Sunday): Cooler air briefly infiltrates behind the cold front, so we knock temperatures down a notch to finish up the weekend. In addition, a wind shift to off the ocean should bring increased clouds as the day wears on. Highs probably reach the low-and-mid 50s. Confidence: Medium-High
Tomorrow Night: We're under the influence of a marine air mass overnight, so temperatures are pretty uniform and not as cold. Look for mostly cloudy skies with lows in the low-and-mid 40s. Confidence: Medium-High
Monday may start fairly cloudy, but winds at the surface and above the ground should shift to the southwest and help push clouds out of the area. We probably don't do much better than partly cloudy, but it all combines for temperatures to reach the low-and-mid 60s. Confidence: Medium
On Tuesday. we've got a good chance of seeing a very warm day for right before Thanksgiving -- savor it if you like warmth (hint, hint). Partly cloudy skies early become cloudier late, and there's a risk of showers (20-30%) during the afternoon or evening, but probably nothing major or terribly widespread. Confidence: Medium
