FORECAST IN DETAIL
After several days of much cooler than normal weather, it’s likely many are ready for a warmer stretch. Well, we’ve got months of that ahead! But also, in the near term temperatures are headed up. Along with those warmer days comes more sunshine and probably the imminent return of the pollen beast. We’ll even need to watch a cold front on Tuesday to see how much moisture it has to run into — I’m talking boomers. Ahhh, spring.
Tonight: If there are clouds around early in the night, they tend to dissipate as we go, leaving us clear for much of the time. That helps us reach our full cool potential! Lows dip to near 40 in the colder spots north and west to the upper 40s downtown. Confidence: Medium-High

Tomorrow night: Skies are partly to mostly clear, and it’s another cool night but also quite pleasant. Winds die off substantially after sunset, generally calm throughout. Lows dip to near 40 in the cold spots, to the upper 40s in the warmer urban cores. Confidence: Medium-High
A LOOK AHEAD
After talking about not often seeing days that are totally clear, we get tossed Monday. Mostly sunny at worst. Oh, and near 70. We’ve hit the weather sweet spot it would seem. Winds should be rather light as well. A day to eat lunch outside at the least. Confidence: Medium
Temperatures are up on Tuesday, with morning readings in the mid-40s to low 50s and perhaps a noticeable increase in humidity. That point may be key to later in the day as a cold front approaches the region. Could we be talking storms? Definitely possible. Even if we don’t get the moisture needed in for strong or severe storms, highs in the low-to-mid 70s should help spark at least scattered showers and thundershowers in the afternoon or evening. Confidence: Medium
