A somewhat subjective rating of the day’s weather, on a scale of 0 to 10.
7/10: Once we shake the low clouds, it should be a winner of a day.
Express forecast Today: Morning clouds, afternoon sun. Highs: 74 to 78. Tonight: Partly cloudy. Lows: 55 to 60. Tomorrow: Mostly sunny. Highs: Near 80. Forecast in detail For the first time this year, every day this week should top 70 degrees. Later in the workweek, we’ll even add some humidity, which will increase the chance for late-day storms. A cool front coming through Friday and Saturday brings the highest chance for rain before humidity lowers by Sunday and it’s not quite as warm.

Late-day storm chances increase from 20 percent Wednesday to 40 percent Thursday. Overnight lows range from near 60 to the mid-60s. Confidence: Medium-High
As a cold front comes through, showers and storms are a decent bet on Friday , especially in the afternoon and evening. The front could move slowly enough for another round Saturday , especially in our southern and southeastern areas. Humid highs Friday are in the mid-80s before dropping closer to 80 on Saturday. Lows are mostly in the 60s. Confidence: Medium
