FORECAST IN DETAIL

Unless the forecast changes dramatically, this should easily be the nicest week of 2019 so far. Every day, highs aim for at least 70 degrees. Moreover, the couple chances of showers we have are only slight and mostly during the overnight hours on Tuesday and Thursday. Unlike last week, we shouldn’t have to worry about significant thunderstorms.

Tomorrow night: Clouds increase and a weak disturbance passing by to our north could set off a shower or two, mainly after midnight. Mild temperatures with lows 55 to 60. Confidence: Medium-High

A LOOK AHEAD

We’re in-between weather systems on Wednesday under partly sunny skies. High temperatures are pleasant — between 70 and 75. Thursday looks good, too, as highs aim for 70 or so. Clouds may increase a bit late with a chance of showers at night. Lows Wednesday night and Thursday night are mostly in the 50s. Confidence: Medium

Friday through Sunday looks promising, although there are a couple possible wrinkles. It’s not out of the question that clouds and even a few showers linger Friday morning, and then there’s a small chance of showers Sunday afternoon. By and large, conditions should be pretty nice, with a mix of clouds and sun and highs fairly close to 70. Overnight lows should be close to 50. Confidence: Medium
