Today’s daily digit

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

5/10: Coldest day we’ve seen this fall despite substantial sunshine, though highs well into the 40s aren’t that extreme. And winds, while breezy, aren’t as blustery as Tuesday’s.

Express forecast

  • Today: Partly to mostly sunny, breezy, cold. Highs: Mid- to upper 40s.
  • Tonight: Mostly clear with diminishing winds. Lows: Upper 20s to low 30s.
  • Tomorrow: Mostly sunny, a bit warmer, lighter winds. Highs: Mid-50s.

Forecast in detail

The winter chill is real today, but overall, there is plenty to look forward to in the forecast. While most spots probably don’t get out of the 40s today, with the breeze making it feel even colder, we’re back into the 50s tomorrow and into the 60s by Friday and the weekend. We should see plenty of sunshine along the way before what looks like a cloudier Sunday.
