FORECAST IN DETAIL
Chilly breezes aside, we're staring down our 5th weekend in a row with pretty benign weather -- it hasn't rained during the weekend since October 3. Of course, this one is much cooler than any of the previous, but we can only battle the calendar so long. While daytime temperatures today through tomorrow are more reminiscent of early December, there is warmer air around the bend for those hoping for another taste.
Today (Saturday): Quite like Friday, but temperatures end up a little cooler. Look for partly cloudy skies with some potential sunnier breaks, mainly early and late. Highs should reach the upper 40s and lower 50s. Winds continue to blow from the northwest around 10 mph with higher gusts. Confidence: Medium-High
Tonight: Standard time returns -- set clocks back 1 hour before bed. The upper-level low pressure responsible for the clouds starts to depart northeast. This means mainly clear skies after dark and cold temperatures overnight. Lows fall to the upper 20s in the chilliest suburbs to the mid-30s downtown. Some spots that have not seen a freeze may tonight. Enjoy the extra hour of sleep (or nightlife)! Confidence: High
Keep reading for the gradually warming forecast into early next week...
Tomorrow (Sunday): This is a pretty decent end to the weekend as high pressure starts to exert some control over the region. Even with plenty of sunshine, temperatures will be slow to respond, so highs in the low-and-mid 50s are still a bit below average. Confidence: Medium-High
Tomorrow Night: Mostly clear and cold. Places that have seen one freeze or more by this point probably flirt with another, while the city and southeast stays a bit milder. Lows are maybe a degree or two warmer than Saturday night. Near 30 to the mid-30s should do it. Confidence: Medium-High
Temperatures are on their way up Monday and Tuesday, and it should be very sunny as well. We head for highs in the upper 50s Monday and probably into the low-and-mid 60s on Tuesday. After that, looks like at least a few more days of above normal temperatures. Confidence: Medium-High
