Today’s daily digit

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

7/10: Today we begin a summer interlude. Some will throw attitude, but moderate humidity merits gratitude.

Express forecast

  • Today: Partly cloudy, light breezes. Highs: 77-81.
  • Tonight: Partly cloudy, calm. Lows: 57-63
  • Tomorrow: Partly sunny, minimal breeze. Highs: 80-84

Forecast in detail

We should finally see more sunshine over the next two to three days and that leads to a notable warm-up. On Friday, record highs in the upper 80s are probably out of reach but low 80s are likely. A band of showers moves through Saturday afternoon and cooler, more autumnlike readings return Sunday.

Today (Thursday): Some low clouds and fog may linger this morning but, take heart, sunshine should gradually break through. That sunshine should push afternoon highs into the upper 70s to low 80s. Breezes from the northwest are light but do knock humidity down comfortably (dew points near 60). Confidence: Medium-High

Tonight: Skies remain partly cloudy through the night with calm winds. Overnight lows dip into the upper 50s to low 60s. Confidence: High

Tomorrow (Friday): Sunshine is more abundant, but clouds still come and go. South winds are barely noticeable, but the humidity climbs into moderate territory (dew points in the low to mid-60s). Highs in the low 80s qualifies it as shorts and T-shirts weather! Confidence: Medium-High

Tomorrow night: Clouds start to increase, and there could even be a stray shower but the main rains are still far to the west. Lows remain in the low to mid-60s. Confidence: Medium-High

A look ahead

Clouds gather as the morning progresses on Saturday. A strong cold front should reach the area by early afternoon and a band of showers will cross the area, probably between late morning and late afternoon. Some downpours are possible but they should pass quickly. Highs should still come close to 80 if the rains do not arrive too early. Gusty winds from the northwest usher in much cooler, drier air overnight, with lows falling to the upper 40s to low 50s, the coolest of the fall so far. Confidence: Medium

Mostly sunny to start Sunday, but scattered clouds pop back up by the afternoon. Highs are only in the mid- to upper 60s and feel cooler with brisk northwest winds. Lows range through the 40s overnight under clear skies. Confidence: Medium-High

Monday is a fine fall day with mainly sunny skies and highs in the upper 60s. Confidence: Medium-High
