PM Update: Gradual clearing tonight, sunny and breezy Friday

Today was showery and gray, but the last of the rains have moved off, and conditions improve to close out the work week. Some patchy fog may form tonight, but sunshine Friday burns that off with relative ease. Temperatures will continue to be solidly above average, with Friday’s highs into the 50s.

Through Tonight: Cloudy skies this evening partially clear overnight. Due to lingering low level moisture, we may see some patchy fog. Overnight lows aren’t particularly cold, ranging from the low-to- mid 30s in the colder suburbs to near 40 downtown.

Friday: Any patchy morning fog gets burned off by the sun early. The balance of the day features blue skies. With a breeze from the northwest at 10-15 mph, highs reach the low-to-mid 50s.

Weekend storm: The latest NAM model throws a bit of a curveball, keeping most of the precipitation for Sunday’s storm south of the metro region. We’d disregard it, but the Euro run showed something similar. On the other hand, the new GFS run has a pretty snowy solution! We’ll try to post an update based on this evening’s runs around 11 p.m. tonight.
