FORECAST IN DETAIL
Before our run past 80 yesterday, it was over 6 months since we’ve seen temperatures so mild in the afternoon. But, we’ve got several more warm days ahead before a bit of a “winter returns” type of air mass. Don’t worry about that though, it is mid-April, so it won’t be too bad. In the meantime, enjoy the heck out of the weekend and Monday (if Mondays can be enjoyed).
Tonight: Skies are partly cloudy on the whole, but we see a period of mostly cloudy overnight. The cloud cover and a continued south wind help keep lows from dipping too far, with the outer suburbs heading for around 50, but downtown maybe staying in the mid-or-upper 50s. Confidence: Medium-High

Tomorrow night: This one borders on warm and muggy with dew points heading toward 60 degrees and lows only falling to about that mark. It’s partly cloudy as winds from the south continue. Confidence: Medium-High
A LOOK AHEAD
We should remain well entrenched in the warmth on Monday as the front remains at least a day to the west. Clouds may increase a little though, and that could hold temperatures “down” in the mid-70s. Getting back toward 80 wouldn’t be shocking either. Confidence: Medium
Skies that turned mostly cloudy Monday night, with an increased risk of showers after midnight, remain that way through Tuesday. Showers will also be a good bet as the front approaches and moves through. Even so, another run well through the 60s to around 70 seems likely. More or less degrees possible, should the front timing change. It’ll turn sharply cooler for Wednesday though… it shouldn’t last too long. Confidence: Low-Medium
