Today’s daily digit

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

Express forecast

  • Today: Mostly sunny, still chilly, less wind. Highs: Mid- to upper 40s.

Forecast in detail

It’s a shame we must endure one more rather chilly day on a weekend, especially with the warmth that awaits us midweek. But at least the wind dies down today, so 40s with sunshine isn’t all that bad. Temperatures begin their climb tomorrow, and by midweek we’ll be dancing (socially distanced) in the streets with highs approaching, and perhaps eventually exceeding, the 70-degree mark!

A look ahead

Tuesday and Wednesday nights feature mild lows in the 40s to near 50. Confidence: Medium-High
