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

6/10. Most of the day is sunny and calm. We may not have wind gusts until late in the day and a slight chance of passing rain/snow showers or even drizzle.

  • Today: Sunny until late in the day, chance of a shower. Highlights: Mid to Over 40.
  • This evening: Any gusts of wind will dissipate early. Lows: Mid to above 20.
  • Tomorrow: Less airy. Mainly sunny. Highlights: Low to mid 40s.
  • Sunday: Sunny, windy, freezing cold. Highs: Mid to Over 30.

A rapid succession of cold fronts and weak, dry disturbances will bring strengthening shots of cold air from the northwest in the coming days. The weekend is even cooler than today, but the sky remains mostly sunny. Expect frequent freezing temperatures throughout the area through Monday.

Cold air slowly erodes further Monday and Tuesday with high temperatures enhanced by mostly sunny skies. We should be able to get to about 50 degrees in the mid 40s. On Tuesday, even the cooler spots should see 50 degrees for high temperatures with the mid-50s in the warmer spots. Any wind on Monday should make it easier to go into Tuesday. Confidence: medium to high
