PM Update: Sunshine returns for the weekend, finally - but still chilly

What a week! Can you believe last Saturday was the last time we had considerable sunshine? Both weekend days promise at least partial sun, but it will be cold, with highs struggling to escape the low 50s. That’s about 10 degrees below normal.

Through Tonight: Clouds slowly decrease. It’s quite cool with lows range from 33 in the cooler suburbs to 39 downtown. Winds are from the west at around 10 mph.

The weekend: Both days feature a mix of clouds and sun and cool temperatures. Highs range from 50-55, with Saturday night’s lows from near 30-32 in the colder suburbs to the mid-to-upper 30s downtown. Winds are mainly from the northwest at 10-15 mph during the day and 5-10 mph at night.
