FORECAST IN DETAIL
The Nice Day train has arrived and it’s not the express as it sticks around through at least Thursday. Temperatures slowly chug a bit warmer, but most of the time we manage pleasant 70s with low humidity for afternoon highs. The weather starts to derail a bit Friday into the weekend as a cool front approaches. Temperatures warm into the low 80s briefly with slightly higher humidity and shower chances especially by Saturday. But it looks like we get another arrival of excellent weather beyond that next cold front.
Tonight: Very light breezes and mostly clear skies open the door for some of the coolest readings we have seen so far this early meteorological autumn as lows dip to the low to middle 40s in the outer suburbs to the low 50s right in the city. Confidence: High

Tomorrow night: Mostly clear, pleasant, and not quite as cool as lows dip into the 50s throughout most of the area. Winds are light again. Confidence: High
A LOOK AHEAD
Friday finds partly cloudy skies and a slight chance of showers (20%) that could be a bit higher out toward the mountains. Highs reach into the low 80s with slightly more humidity, but still generally pleasant overall. Friday night is partly cloudy with lows in the 60s. Confidence: Medium
The weekend has a different flavor than last weekend as we are timing a cold front to come through at some point on Saturday (from around midday to maybe evening) with showers and possible thunderstorms just ahead of it. How much rain we get is still a tough one, but it does not appear to be enough to wash out our September deficit yet.
Highs should range in the upper 70s to low 80s with more clouds on Saturday, but Sunday may clear by the afternoon with perhaps more sunshine sneaking back into play. Saturday night is partly cloudy with lows in the 60s and a continued chance of showers, especially toward evening.
I have to keep forecast confidence for the weekend on the lower side currently as the guidance is mixed on the cold front passage details and there is even a risk it could hang around into Sunday with a few more showers. Confidence: Low-Medium
