In a week in which the weather has been virtually flawless, today’s considerable cloud cover, at times, was the lone chip in the armor.  These clouds fade tonight into Saturday morning, setting up an indescribably nice autumn weekend.

Through Tonight: Clouds gradually decrease, with skies becoming mostly clear towards morning.  Lows range from the cool upper 40s in the cooler suburbs to the mid-to-upper 50s downtown. Light winds from the northeast

The weekend: Maybe a few clouds Saturday and Sunday morning, but – for the most part – mostly sunny and gorgeous.  Highs both day should be in the mid-70s with light winds from the east and northeast at 5-10 mph.  Mostly clear Saturday night, with lows in the mid-to-upper 40s in the cooler suburbs to the mid-50s downtown.
