FORECAST IN DETAIL
That sun sure feels warm coming in through the window, but step outside and you’re in for a shock. Speaking of shocks, you might notice a few more surprises from light switches, doorknobs, etc., thanks to our very dry air mass helping to put a static charge into the air. That’s the deal we get for the next few days as high pressure holds and we get lots of sun and plenty of cool conditions. By mid-week, we get a little bit of warmth back, but rain chances come along with it by late on Wednesday.
Today (Sunday): Those gusty winds that provided the extra bite yesterday die down today but there’s still plenty of chill leftover. A big dome of high pressure stays in control overhead and that means lots more sun is in the forecast. If you’re not planning on going out much today don’t fret, it might look like the perfect day, but with highs only in the low-to-mid 40s, it leaves something to be desired. Confidence: High
Tonight: It’s a triple-c forecast: clear, calm, and cold! Starry skies and a dry airmass let the temperatures drop down toward the low 20s in the outlying ‘burbs to nearer 30 downtown once again, so bundle up if you’re out and about. Confidence: High

Tomorrow (Monday): Our big, friendly high pressure isn’t going anywhere leading to a continuance of our clear and chilly conditions. Temperatures creep up a little bit as the air mass gets moderated a bit by the mid-latitudes it now resides in. Still, highs remain a bit below average, in the mid-to-upper 40s. Confidence: High
Tomorrow night: There may be a few more clouds in the sky as we head into the overnight but I’m still comfortable calling it mostly clear. As our highs crept up a few degrees, so do our nighttime lows, still chilly though, in the mid-20s to near freezing. Confidence: Medium-HighA LOOK AHEAD
Our temperatures return to more seasonable levels on Tuesday. It may not be quite the nearly flawless blue skies we’ve gotten used to but we’ll still see our fair share of mostly clear skies. A pretty nice day overall, with highs getting back near and above 50.
On Tuesday night, skies turn partly to mostly cloudy, with lows in the low-to-mid 30s. Confidence: Medium-High
Chances for rain finally make a comeback as a warm front approaches our region late on Wednesday. Most of the day should be dry, with partly sunny skies, but increasing clouds signal at least a slight chance for showers to move in from the west towards the evening. Temperatures are mild, in the low-to mid 50s. Confidence: Low-Medium
