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

A look ahead

Sunshine quickly returns on Saturday as winds ease. Highs should manage to reach the low 60s in most areas. Overnight is sweater weather as lows range from the mid-30s to low 40s with spotty light frost possible in our far-out suburbs. Confidence: Medium

Sunday is just a tad warmer under partly cloudy skies. Highs are mainly in the mid-60s, making for another fine day to be out. Overnight lows dip into the upper 40s to low 50s. Confidence: Medium

Clouds should increase on Monday, but the jury is still out on whether showers reach the area or pass just to our north. Highs should make the mid-60s and possibly upper 60s as long as we dodge the showers. Confidence: Low-Medium
