Today’s Forecast

Today (Monday): A little rain may linger early but, by midmorning, most of us should be clearing out. As the storm passes to our north, winds from the northwest steadily crank up, becoming sustained at 25 to 30 mph this morning and turning gusty. Peak gusts should reach 40 to 50 mph before easing somewhat toward evening. High temperatures in the 50s early in the morning dip some and then mostly hover in the upper 40s through late afternoon. Confidence: Medium-High

Tonight: It’s not as windy but it does turn cold. Lows range from the upper 20s to low 30s. Clouds may increase some overnight, and a passing rain or snow shower is possible but shouldn’t amount to anything. Confidence: Medium

Confidence: Medium-High

Weekend Outlook

The weekend forecast isn’t totally clear-cut. There’s no big storm, but a little moisture may try to overrun some chilly air feeding into the region from the north. Models conflict on whether we’ll see any precipitation. For now, we’ll call for mostly cloudy skies with highs in the 40s and lows in the 30s. Confidence: Low-Medium
