FORECAST IN DETAIL


Today (Monday): Nothing too remarkable about today. Skies provide a mix of sun and clouds with a 20-30 percent chance (highest odds towards the mountains) of showers and storms late in the day.

Tomorrow (Tuesday): A weak upper level disturbance swings by - enough to generate partly to mostly cloudy skies and a 30-40 percent chance of showers and storms, especially in the afternoon. Highs should manage to reach the mid-80s. Confidence: Medium

Tomorrow night: Storms are possible, mainly during the evening. Outside of any storms, it’s partly to mostly cloudy and mild, with lows 68-73 (suburbs-city). Confidence: Medium

A LOOK AHEAD

One more little wave in the atmosphere cycles through Wednesday, perhaps providing the best chance of showers and storms this week - at 40-50 percent. Lots of clouds probably hold high temperatures to the mid-80s. Drying out Wednesday night, with lows from the mid-60s in the cooler suburbs to the low 70s downtown. Confidence: Medium

Thursday through the weekend is partly to mostly sunny with slowly increasing temperatures. Highs Thursday climb into the upper 80s with low 90s Friday and low-to-mid 90s over the weekend. Afternoon thunderstorm chances are lowest Thursday at less than 20 percent and - at the moment - don’t look to get much higher than 20-30 percent through the weekend. Overnights are mild, with lows in the 62-67 in the cooler suburbs to 70-75 downtown. Confidence: Medium
