Today’s daily digit

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

8/10: It’s my kind of day. Perhaps a bit warm (and increasingly muggy) for October.

Express forecast

  • Today: Mostly sunny. Highs: Upper 70s to near 80.
  • Tonight: Mostly to partly clear. Lows: Upper 50s and lower 60s.
  • Tomorrow: Partly cloudy. Highs: Low to mid-80s.

Forecast in detail

There’s been a run of really nice days lately, and right on time historically. In some ways, that’s over. Temperatures rise almost 10 degrees today compared with yesterday. We’ll see highs bump up even farther on Sunday. While it’s not necessarily exceptional heat, after a summer of plenty, it’ll certainly feel a little summerlike at times in the days to come.

Today (Saturday): Any patches of fog dissipate quick with sunrise. Otherwise, it’s a warm and largely sunny one. Temperatures rising to the upper 70s and near 80 for highs are a bit above normal for early October. Well timed, if you’re planning on spending the day outdoors. Winds are from the south-southwest around five to 10 mph. Confidence: Medium-High

Tonight: It’s a beautiful evening, with temperatures falling toward and below 70 in the time around sunset. Partly to mostly clear skies rule, which means stars are shining bright. Lows are mainly in the upper 50s and lower 60s. A patch or two of fog is possible late. Confidence: Medium-High

Tomorrow (Sunday): We’ll see more in the way of clouds compared to recent days. Humidity is also more noticeable, as temperatures rise to the low and mid-80s for highs. It’s legitimately feeling like late summer. I think we make it through most or all of the daylight period without rain, but odds of a shower or storm are up by evening. Confidence: Medium

Tomorrow night: A risk of a thunderstorm persists through the evening. Clouds are more numerous overnight, and there could be a few showers. Lows are mainly in the 60s. Confidence: Medium

A look ahead

Better odds of some showers or storms, particularly in the afternoon, come along on Monday. It’s still warm, and perhaps even muggier than it was over the weekend. Highs are mainly around 80. Confidence: Medium

No major changes into Tuesday. If anything, there might be more clouds than Monday. That along with a continued chance of showers means temperatures may tend to fall just short of 80 most spots. Still muggy, though. Confidence: Medium
