As long as you don’t mind wind and cool temperatures today, this weekend is fairly classic early spring from start to finish. Sunshine is the rule through at least midday Sunday, and temperatures in the 50s today head toward the 60s tomorrow. We also managed to get the rain to come before and after the weekend. Never an easy job these days.

Today (Saturday): Sunshine is dominant, which is good news, because winds are still feisty. As highs rise to the mid-50s or so, they’ll contend with northwest winds around 20 mph with higher gusts. Stay out of the shade if you want to be as warm as possible. Sunscreen, though! Confidence: High

Tonight: Winds die down after sunset and stay diminished through the night. Under clear skies, it’s a seasonably cold one, with readings in the upper 20s in the chilliest spots north and west to the mid- and upper 30s in the city. Confidence: High

Tomorrow (Sunday): This looks like a winner of a day. Sunshine is most consistent in the morning, with clouds increasing during the second half of the day. Perfect sunshine or not, it’s mild to warm, with temperatures aiming for the mid-60s. Winds are light from the south. Confidence: High

Tomorrow night: Clouds thicken through the evening, and showers may arrive after sunset. Once they do so, it could be off and on through the night. Overnight readings are kept up somewhat by the clouds, numbers settling to the mid-40s and around 50. Confidence: Medium-High


Additional showers are likely into Monday, as a little system rides a cold front passing by. With plenty of cloudiness and precipitation moving through, highs in the near-50 to mid-50s range seem about right. There’s some chance this tries to end as snow or mixed precipitation, but it’s not likely to amount to anything if so. Confidence: Medium

It’s a chilly one for late March on Tuesday. Temperatures start out near and below freezing for lows. Despite a lot of sun, highs are mainly in the upper 40s to lower 50s. It’s probably rather breezy, as well. Confidence: Medium
