PM Update: A dry weekend, not as cool Sunday

Despite a chilly breeze, highs inched closer to normal today, but still fell well short, reaching the low-to-mid 40s (normal is low 50s). A modest increase in cloud cover Saturday keeps temps on the cool side. Winds from the south Sunday help temperatures edge closer to 50, but not quite there.

Through Tonight: Partly cloudy and cold. Lows range from the low 20s in the colder suburbs to upper 20s downtown. Light winds.

Tomorrow (Saturday) and tomorrow night: Considerable cloud cover and a breeze from the northeast (at around 8-10 mph) make for a chilly day. Highs range from 39-43. Mostly cloudy at night as well, with lows 30-35 (suburbs-city).

Sunday: Partly sunny and a bit milder compared to previous days. Highs reach the mid-to-upper 40s with light winds from the south at 5-10 mph.
