Weather - Tranquil Times


Tranquil Times

By Marek Zebrowski

As the western half of the nation turns stormy and cold (first seasonal snowfall in the Colorado Rockies), our weather will be determined by the ridge of high pressure, establishing itself along the Eastern Seaboard just in time for the weekend. A warm front, associated with a low in the western Great Lakes, will approach from the south on Saturday and bring some clouds in, but as it swings by, a southerly flow will develop for a very pleasant and warm Sunday. By Monday, a cold front and a low pressure wave will arrive form the west: clouds, showers, and cooler weather are to follow for the first part of next week.

Today: Mostly sunny, with some passing fair weather clouds, especially just to our north. Mild afternoon with highs near 66F (19C).

Tonight: Clear and cooler, with some radiational cooling as winds become light and variable. Patchy fog possible in the valleys. Low 46F (8C) in town, near 40F (5C) elsewhere.

Saturday: Mostly sunny, with some milky high clouds approaching from the south. Afternoon sea breezes will develop. High about 64F (18C).

Saturday night: Partly cloudy, low near 50F (10C).

Sunday outlook: Becoming partly to mostly sunny and warmer, with highs flirting around the 70F (21C) mark.
