We kickoff one of the year's most delightful stretches of weather today thanks to the pre-dawn passage of a strong cold front. Welcome (with open arms) the Canadian high pressure system building into the region that will give us clean, clear and refreshing air for at least the next five days.
TodayGradual clearing, breezy and cooler.
If you're up early, the skies may be mostly cloudy, but by mid-morning , the sun shall be shining brightly. Skies will remain mainly sunny during the afternoon with high temperatures in the low to mid 70s. You'll notice quite a breeze, with northwest winds 15-25mph and gusty. Overnight, winds will diminish and temperatures will tank. Lows will range from the 43-50 (suburbs-city). Open the windows and throw on an extra blanket.
TomorrowAutumn in the air: sunny and cool.
Get your jeans and fleeces ready: an unseasonably cool airmass will take hold. High temperatures will struggle to reach 70 degrees (10 degrees below normal) -- despite mostly sunny skies. Winds will be generally light, from the northeast at 5-10mph.
