A look ahead

If you can manage some time off between Wednesday and Friday, make it happen, or at least squeeze in a little outside time. Skies are partly to mostly sunny, with highs near 70 each day. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday nights are partly cloudy and mild, with lows in the vicinity of 50 (more 40s in our colder areas, and somewhat above 50 downtown). Confidence: Medium-High

A cold front sinks south over the weekend, dropping temperatures and offering the chance of occasional showers. It doesn’t look like a washout, and extended dry periods are possible, but the front will mark an end to the 70-degree sunshine, with mostly cloudy skies and highs in the 50s and lows 35 to 40. Confidence: Low-Medium
