After yesterday’s storminess, we all probably deserve a nice weekend. For the most part, this one should deliver! Today’s about as nice as they come in early June, with low humidity and pleasant temperatures. Sunday should bring mainly more of the same before rain chances rise heading into the work week.

Today (Saturday): There may be some morning fog, particularly in places that got a lot of rain yesterday, but it should burn off rather quick. After that, it’s mostly sunny and highs should reach the mid-to-upper 70s. West winds around 5 to 10 mph keep the air mixed and help dry everything out. Confidence: Medium-High

Tonight: We’ve got a stellar evening on tap. Head out and enjoy it if you can! Lows eventually reach the low and mid 50s across the area. Confidence: Medium-High

Tomorrow (Sunday): Want more sun and pleasant temperatures? You’ve got it. Mostly sunny skies may become a bit cloudier late, but it should stay dry. West winds continue, and they may increase to about 15 mph late in the day. Highs reach the upper 70s to lower 80s. Confidence: Medium

Tomorrow night: Partly cloudy skies continue through the night, and it’s a touch warmer than tonight, but not that warm for June. Expect lows to mainly fall into the mid and upper 50s. Confidence: Medium


On Monday, clouds thicken up and we run the risk of a few showers, particularly in the afternoon. Humidity rises a bit as well with the return of a south wind. Temperatures should reach highs in the mid-70s to near 80. Confidence: Medium

Tuesday brings partly to mostly cloudy skies and keeps the shower threat alive, mainly during the peak heat of the day in the afternoon. Temperatures are cooler though, with highs ranging from near 70 to mid-70s. Confidence: Medium
