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

9/10: It might be a little warmer than average so I’ll be on the safe side and subtract one for that.

  • Today: Quite sunny. Treble: low to mid 80s.
  • This evening: Generally clear. Bottom: mid 50s to low 60s.
  • Tomorrow: Mainly to partly sunny. Treble: low 80s.

This gorgeous weather streak peaks over the weekend. This will be an excellent time to get outside, given the warm temperatures, plenty of sunshine, and low humidity. While the weather will likely remain fairly pleasant early next week, we will eventually see an increase in humidity and chance of rain. We don’t have to worry about that for a while.

Today (Saturday): It’s one of those days with little to no clouds. Add low humidity and low to mid 80s temperatures. Expect it to be crowded there! The winds are light from the northwest. Confidence: medium-high

This evening: The sky remains clear. With relatively low humidity, this means that temperatures drop quickly after sunset. Take a diaper if you go out late. Lows will settle between the mid 50s and near 60s. Confidence: Medium-High

Tomorrow Sunday): It’s quite similar to Saturday. Maybe more clouds and slightly cooler temperatures. Honestly, it might be hard to notice a big difference. Highs are in the 80s as winds turn to come from the southeast. Confidence: medium-high

Tomorrow evening: Partially clear skies persist. With a southeast wind, the humidity begins to rise slightly. That’s likely keeping temperatures a hair’s breadth from last night and tonight. Lows are in the upper 50s to mid-60s. Confidence: Medium-High

More of the same Monday. If we’re going to get more of the same, it might as well be with weather like this! Skies are mostly sunny with highs reaching the low to mid-80s. Confidence: Medium-High

By Tuesday, the humidity is more noticeable and that probably means more clouds. We might even get a downpour or storm late in the day as temperatures climb into the low and mid 80s. Confidence: Medium
