Tomorrow (Thursday): We’re on the east side of high pressure centered over the Midwest. So that means mostly sunny skies and a continued breeze out of the northwest around 10-15 mph, with highs only reaching the low-to-mid 50s. Confidence: High

Tomorrow night: High pressure settles in more squarely overhead. That leads to lighter winds as skies stay mostly clear. The result is an even chillier night with lows down to the mid-30s to near 40, and again some areas of frost possible in our suburbs. Confidence: High


Mostly sunny skies Friday morning turn partly cloudy during the afternoon, as the center of high pressure slides off to our east. A light wind from the south helps get afternoon highs back to near 60, followed by a chance of showers Friday night with warmer lows near 50. Confidence: Medium-High

A cold front keeps the chance of showers going Saturday morning, before rain chances diminish during the afternoon, as highs manage the low-to-mid 60s despite mostly to partly cloudy skies. Look for partly cloudy and breezy conditions Saturday night, with perhaps a passing shower before lows dip to the 40s. And then winds continue rather breezy from the northwest on Sunday, with plenty of sun, but highs only in the 50s. Confidence: Medium
