More clouds than expected - thanks to a bit of mid-level moisture combined with upward motion ahead of an approaching cold front - didn’t prevent warm breezes from the south and west from pushing highs to the super comfortable upper 70s to near 80. Clouds persist at times into tomorrow morning, producing a sprinkle or light shower at most, before sun returns for much of Saturday. Weekend temps? Around average, which means about 15-20 degrees cooler than today.
Through Tonight: Evening temps dropping into the 60s are spectacular and skies may clear to partly or mostly clear for a time this late afternoon into evening, before clouding up again through the overnight. A sprinkle or light shower is about the most we’ll see through the evening and overnight as a cold front approaches and passes through. Overnight lows are rather mild, in the upper 40s to low 50s (suburbs) to low-to-mid-50s (downtown).
Tomorrow (Saturday): Early-morning clouds, and maybe a sprinkle or light shower, give way to mostly sunny skies by mid-morning. While a good deal cooler than today, temperatures reaching afternoon highs in the low 60s should fell pretty nice with the sun, even with a cool breeze from the north around 15 mph. Mostly clear skies should also make for a good view of Saturday evening’s Super Moon.
