PM Update: A fine early December weekend awaits; seasonably cold tonight

We climbed back into above normal territory today with highs reaching the mid-50s. Behind a weak cold front, we slip back down to near normal temps Saturday, before stepping back up to slightly milder conditions to close out the weekend. No rain to worry about but some increase in clouds on Sunday.

Through Tonight: Clear, calm and cold. We fall back into the 40s after sunset, with 30s in most spots by after midnight (except around 40 downtown). Low temperatures range from around 35 downtown to the mid-20s in the colder suburbs.

The weekend: High pressure produces a sunny Saturday with seasonably moderate highs in the low 50s. Clear to partly cloudy Saturday night, with lows from upper 20s to upper 30s (colder suburbs to city). On Sunday, we see a few more clouds, but winds from south (light at near 10 mph) lift temperatures into the mid-to-upper 50s.
