Two hour radar loop of rain and storm movement through the area. Refresh page to update.

A somewhat subjective rating of the day’s weather, on a scale of 0 to 10.

5/10: Relief from the “heat!” It comes with a murky, showery, and eventually raw kind of day.


Today: Cloudy, showers. Highs: 60s, falling to 50s.
Tonight: Clearing, breezy. Lows: Upper 30s to mid-40s.
Tomorrow: Mostly sunny. Highs: Mid-and-upper 50s.


Hope you got your fill of warmth yesterday as we’ve got a run of much cooler days ahead. While it’ll undoubtedly be warm at some point soon again, temperatures like we saw yesterday are probably a memory until winter begins to wane. It was a bit too warm anyway! Today’s a 180 from Friday as clouds and cool weather take the place of sunshine and toasty temperatures.

Today (Saturday): Showers are possible throughout the daylight period, perhaps most focused on the midday. It should mostly be light, but there’s the potential for a moderate burst here and there. Much cooler air filters in as the front pushes further to the south and east during the day. This is one of those days with highs occurring early, likely near midnight last night, and temperatures tending to fall off most of the day. We may hold in the 60s until early afternoon, though temperatures should fall off into the 50s in any sustained rain and/or do so prior to sunset either way. Add in a breeze around 10 mph, with higher gusts, and it might be a bit raw at times. Confidence: Medium-High

Tonight: Showers should be out of here by early evening at the latest. I think sunset or so is a good cutoff time for those types of concerns locally. Clouds may take a bit longer to really break, but we’ll see more and more stars as time goes. It’s cool and breezy with lows falling into the upper 30s in the colder suburbs to the mid-40s downtown. Confidence: Medium-High

Tomorrow (Sunday): Remember November? This one’s pretty classic for the month. Even a bit cooler than normal for highs? It might come as a bit of a shock to the system after our warm stretch of recent to see both sunshine and temperatures struggling to get out of the 50s. Winds should die down as the day progresses with afternoon highs reaching the mid-and-upper 50s. Not bad, not bad at all! Confidence: Medium-High

Tomorrow night: Clear skies, light winds, and a chilly air mass. By this time of year that often means freeze potential, at least in the suburbs. No different here as lows fall into the near 30 to mid-30s range much of the area. Of course the “ink blotches” of the urban centers are warmer, where lows are near 40.Confidence: Medium


Monday should be quite excellent other than the obvious of it being a Monday. Sunshine is again plentiful and winds are rather light as highs run toward 60. Clouds may be on the increase by afternoon. No rain worries just yet though. Those clouds do thicken and lower overnight, and showers may move in from the south prior to sunrise Tuesday morning as lows reach the mid-40s to low 50s. Confidence: Medium

An offshore low (get ready to hear that a lot this winter!) skirts by the region on Tuesday. That means showers are a good bet during the day. This looks like another event that might have more bark than bite, but it could drop better rain than recent systems. Highs range from the upper 50s to low 60s, largely depending on how much rain falls. Coolest if wettest. Confidence: Medium
