Forecast: Warming Up but Not Warm
Relative to the last week, temperatures in the coming week will certainly feel mild by comparison. But it's not going to be that mild. We'll get lots of 45+ degree days, but surpassing 50 may not happen. Keep the Bermuda shorts in the attic.
Mostly sunny. 45-50. Despite the possibility of hitting the big 5-0 in today's forecast, it's going to be C-O-L-D early this morning with 20s in most spots. As we go to work, so will the sun, boosting temperatures to their warmest levels in about a week. Overnight, temperatures drop back down near freezing downtown and the upper 20s in most suburbs.
Chance of PM showers. Upper 40s. Clouds will increase ahead of a cold front approaching from the west. The morning should remain dry, but some scattered showers are possible (50/50 chance) in the afternoon. A southerly wind will make it mild and if we can get any sun, temperatures could crack 50 -- although upper 40s are the better bet. Overnight, rain showers are likely, with lows near 40.
Keep reading for a look ahead to the forecast for the rest of the week...
Gradual clearing, breezy. Upper 40s. A cold front will clear the region first thing in the morning, with decreasing clouds during the afternoon. As the air following the front won't be all that cold high temperatures should again reach the upper 40s, but won't feel that warm considering the wind. Overnight, as winds diminish under clear skies, temperatures should drop down to the mid 20s in the suburbs and upper 20s downtown.
A LOOK AHEAD
Clouds will increase on Thursday, as a storm develops to the southwest. Highs should be in the mid 40s. The storm will bring rain Thursday night continuing into Friday, when highs should be in the low 40s. As of now, dry conditions look to return for the weekend, with temperatures in the mid to upper 40s.
