Today (Sunday): Though I think much of the rain today stays off to our south, chances are about 40-60% (north to south) that that we see at least a passing shower or two. Best chance looks to be early morning, and then between mid-afternoon and mid-to-late evening. Nothing too heavy though. Mostly cloudy skies keep highs in the low-to-mid 50s feeling kind of cool. Confidence: Medium

Tonight: Shower chances are around 50% area-wide through mid-to-late evening. But again, anything we do see should be on the light side, and chances decrease overnight. With the moisture in the air and light winds, I’d expect patchy fog to form in some areas overnight as well. Lows are more like our average highs this time of year, in the mid-40s to near 50. Confidence: Medium

Tomorrow (Monday): The morning looks continued cloudy, but rain should hold off for the most part. By afternoon, however, strengthening low pressure moving toward us from the west increases shower chances to about 60%. Despite the cloudy skies, mild breezes from the south/southeast should help boost highs to the upper 50s to near 60. Confidence: Medium

Tomorrow night: Showers are likely during the evening as low pressure moves through, before decreasing overnight or toward morning. Any rain we can get is welcome given we’re very much on the dry side both for the month and the year as a whole. Some areas of fog are likely once again as lows only dip to the mid-40s to near 50. Confidence: Medium


Shower chances may linger Tuesday morning, with clearing skies possible by afternoon as the system pulls away to our north and east and drier air works its way into the area. Winds likely become increasingly gusty through the day with highs in the 50s to near 60. Skies continue to clear overnight, but breezes help keep temperatures from sinking too far, with overnight lows in the 30s to near 40. Confidence: Medium

Wednesday brings a nice change of pace with brighter skies and temperatures falling off only slightly in the wake of a cold front. We may still have breezes to deal with, but overall it looks like a pretty nice day, especially after the run of gray and damp conditions. Expect mostly sunny skies and highs in the 50s. Confidence: Medium
