Although we now have an hour less afternoon daylight this week, we'll have no shortage of sunshine. At least through Saturday, sunshine sparkles with little exception. Temperatures are pretty uniform during this stretch, maxing out each day around 60 - though some mid-60s could enter the picture late in the week. The first half of the week certainly feels chillier than the second due to some gusty winds.

Today (Monday): We're caught between high pressure building in from the west and deepening low pressure off the coast of New England. Pressure differences generate wind, so expect lots of it. Blowing from the northwest, winds increase from 10 mph this morning to 15-20 mph in the afternoon, with gusts to 30 mph or so. Though some high clouds may increase in the afternoon, sunshine warms the mercury to around 60 degrees, but it feels cooler than that. Confidence: High

Tonight: Partial cloud cover is possible overnight, edging south from the low off the coast of New England. The winds keep coming from the northwest at about 10-20 mph. That makes temperatures dipping into the mid-30s to low 40s feel as cold as 30 or so early in the morning. Confidence: Medium-High

Keep reading for the forecast through next weekend...

Tomorrow (Tuesday): It's another mostly sunny, breezy day as the low off the coast off the New England slowly starts to pull away. Highs head up to near 60 with winds from the north at 10-15 mph, with some gusts over 20 mph. Confidence: High

Tomorrow Night: Clear and cold, but not as windy. Lows dip from the low 30s in the colder suburbs to near 40 downtown. Winds diminish to 5-10 mph from the north. Confidence: Medium-High


Wednesday through Saturday produces a wonderful stretch of November weather. Skies are mostly sunny each with highs moderating from near 60 Wednesday to the mid- (to even upper?) 60s Friday and Saturday. Overnight lows range from the low-to-mid 30s to low 40s (suburbs to city). Confidence: Medium-High

A cold front may move into the region Sunday increasing clouds and the chance (30%) of showers. Highs are near 60. Confidence: Low-Medium

Sunshine was out bright and early, hope that didn't impact anyone's commute with sun in the eyes while driving? At least it was pleasant weather, right?

The sun wasn't a big factor at 5am. Very frosty, I volunteered to scrape the van.
