Forecast: Some Super Sunday Sunshine
Enjoy our second straight fine weekend day. The weather will be perfect for enjoying some outdoor activities before parking yourself on the sofa for the big game tonight. And if you like warm winter weather, be sure to check out the forecast for Tuesday.
Partly sunny. Mid 50s. Sky conditions will be a lot like yesterday, but will change in reverse order. We'll start off with mostly sunny skies but high clouds will increase during the afternoon. Highs in the mid 50s won't be much different from Glendale, Arizona -- host of Super Bowl XLII -- where temps should max out in the low 60s. Overnight here in the metro area, it will be mostly cloudy with lows in the mid to upper 30s

Cloudy with scattered showers. Mid to upper 40s. Easterly winds will cool us down a bit as high pressure to our north drifts off the coast. At the same time, a warm front will approach from the southwest. The net result will be considerable cloudiness with the chance (30%) of a few showers. Compared to the weekend, it will be a bit raw, with highs struggling to climb through the 40s. Overnight, the warm front most likely will have passed to our north. The resulting southerly flow should hold temperatures from dropping off much, with low temperatures 40-45.
A LOOK AHEAD
Depending on the amount of sunshine on Tuesday, temperatures could get quite warm. For now, I'll call for a mix of sun and clouds, with highs 60-65. The unseasonable warmth won't last too long, as a cold front will move through Wednesday morning with a period of rain. By afternoon, it will become windy and cooler with temperatures dropping from the 50s to the 40s. Thursday should be mostly sunny and seasonably brisk, with highs in the mid 40s. Another cold front move pass through the area on Friday, with a slight chance of showers (possibly snow flurries to the north and west) with highs again in the 40s.
