Umbrellas will be out in force today, but won't be needed the rest of the work week (next chance late this weekend?). Dry conditions take over after today, but expect some bouts of wind and variable temperatures.
A warm front moving through the area will bring a 40% chance of morning showers. This activity should diminish in the early afternoon. By late in the afternoon and into the evening, showers and thunderstorms are likely (70% chance) as a cold front approaches the area. Before the showers move through, high temperatures should reach 57-61.
Showers and thunderstorms should continue through midnight, with partial clearing by morning. Low temperatures should be in the upper 40s to around 50.
TuesdayBreezy and cooler.
Expect a partly sunny and brisk day. Morning temperatures in the low 50s will probably only rise a few degrees into the mid 50s -- holding steady through the afternoon before falling into the 40s by sunset. Look out for gusty northwest winds of 10-20mph. Overnight, winds should gradually diminish, with clear skies and cold temperatures. Lows will fall to 25-30 (suburbs-city).

WednesdayMostly sunny and seasonal.
After a very chilly start (in the 20s to near 30), temperatures will steadily warm with sunshine in abundance. High temperatures should reach the low to mid 50s. With high pressure overhead, winds will be light.
A Look Ahead
- It should be mild on Thursday before a cold front moves late with a slight chance of a shower. High temperatures should be in the mid to upper 50s.
- Friday and Saturday will be cooler behind Thursday's front. Highs should be in the upper 40s to around 50.
- Late Saturday night may bring some cold rain before milder air arrives some time Sunday, when showers could linger. The details on Sunday's forecast are fuzzy, so stay tuned for more updates.
