Today’s daily digit

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

7/10: Clouds and showers are worth the price, for milder and less humid air that is oh so nice.

Express forecast

  • Today: Mainly cloudy with a few showers ending in the afternoon. Highs: 75 to 79.
  • Tonight: Gradual clearing and low humidity. Lows: 56 to 62.
  • Tomorrow: Sunny, breezy and dry. Highs: 76 to 80.

Forecast in detail

If it weren’t for the clouds and morning showers, today would be a winner as heat and humidity flee south. The stage is set for a couple of stunning days Friday and Saturday with lots of sun and low humidity. Summer heat comes skulking back on Sunday and Monday, but at least with plenty of sunshine.

Today (Thursday): Clouds dominate the morning with showers likely. Breezes from the northwest gradually cut off the rain and lower the humidity. By afternoon, most showers should die out and some sun should begin to peek through. Highs in the mid- to upper 70s are a nice change of pace. Confidence: Medium-High

Tonight: Skies clear out overnight and the humidity drops to refreshingly low levels. Northwest breezes persist with lows in the upper 50s to lower 60s. Confidence: Medium-High

A look ahead

Saturday is another winner. Humidity remains low, skies are sunny and breezes gentle. Highs hold in the lower 80s. Check out the crescent moon in the western evening sky, hovering between bright star Antares and Venus. Lows are mainly in the upper 50s to lower 60s. Confidence: High

Sunshine continues to dominate, but heat and humidity are on the uptick Sunday. Highs reach the mid- to upper 80s for a summer reboot. Overnight lows hold in the mid- to upper 60s. Confidence: High

Skies start out sunny on Monday. Clouds pop up later in the day but not in time to head off highs in the upper 80s, with humidity back in the uncomfortable range. Confidence: Medium-High
