Forecast: Sunny and slightly warm
Next chance of rain not until Sunday
FORECAST IN DETAIL
Having a long-term guest has its upsides and downsides. Our current atmospheric visitor plans to stay for five more days, so you'll have plenty of time to get acquainted. This friendly wedge of high pressure will offer a very pleasant stay with sunshine, seasonal-to-warm weather (low 60s), and no rain until maybe late on Sunday when it packs its bags to head east. The only downside is that this feature is preventing us from seeing the much warmer weather visiting the Midwest (70s). But we'll be polite and appreciate the company.
Today (Tuesday): The wind is waning. Yesterday's stronger breezes were generated in part by a storm system along the New England coast that delivered rain/snow/sleet to Boston and even briefly to New York City. Today's winds may still work up above 10 mph at times, but not to the sometimes annoying levels we saw yesterday. Temperatures should be similar though with highs mainly in the low 60s (normal: upper 50s) under mostly sunny skies. Confidence: High
Tonight: Mostly clear skies reign with seasonally cool temperatures into the low 40s. We could see upper 30s in the outer suburbs. Light lingering breezes are possible, especially in the evening. Confidence: High
Keep reading for the forecast through the weekend...
Tomorrow (Wednesday): High pressure does all the work again with mostly sunny skies, light breezes, and temperatures maxing out in the low 60s. Some computer weather models suggest that the area could stall in the upper 50s, but the widespread sunshine and moderating air mass should allow most of us to reach the low 60s. Confidence: Medium-High
Tomorrow Night: Seasonally cool and pleasant with low 40s and maybe a few scattered upper 30s. Mostly clear skies. Confidence: High
Thursday and Friday are carbon copy days to finish our pleasant weather week. I believe our skies should be sunny on these days with solid high pressure overhead. And temperatures could sneak up a little higher toward the middle 60s- but if we're wrong, then we'd still see low 60s like the rest of this week. Lows should be mainly in the 40s, but we could sneak down into the 30s in the outer suburbs. Confidence: Medium
The weekend starts with more of the same with sunny Saturday skies and temperatures in the 60s again. But our long-term visitor, the big Canadian high pressure, decides to head toward the Atlantic by Sunday (or maybe it is being pushed along by the next air mass). A late-day cold front on Sunday could trigger afternoon clouds and a few evening showers (20% chance). Sunday highs are slated to be in the 60s as well, and weekend lows area in the 40s. That cold front may stall around our area early next week, beginning a somewhat wetter period. Confidence: Low-Medium
