Clear Skies and Fantastic Weather for the Week

Public weather briefing

After a rainy Saturday associated with a cold front moving through the area, pleasant conditions have taken over the city.  Sunny skies and warm temperatures will be apparent throughout the week.  Temperatures will start in the low 70's early in the week and steadily rise to the mid to high 70's for the start of the weekend.  Lows will be in the low to mid 50's throughout the week as well.  It should be a clear and sunny week due to the high pressure system located over the area and other than the chance for some fog in the mornings it should be a very nice week overall.  


Tonight. Clear skies with light westerly winds. Lows in the mid to high 40's.

Tuesday. Mostly sunny with calm winds. High around 70.

Tuesday night. Clear and calm.  Lows in the lower 50's. 

Wednesday. Mostly sunny and warmer. Light southerly winds. High in the mid to low 70's. Low around 50. Chance of patchy fog in the early morning.

Thursday. More sun and continued warm temps. High in the mid 70's.  Low in the low 50's.

Outlook for Friday through Sunday. Mostly sunny all weekend. Temperature highs in the low to mid 70's with lows in the 50's throughout the weekend. [CONFIDENCE: HIGH]

Forecast Discussion

The arrival of an anticyclone over the weekend has brought warm temperatures and clear skies.  This anticyclone came from the southwest and has brought with it warm air advection.  These conditions will continue throughout the week as this anticyclone will slowly crawl eastward due the lack of any cyclones moving through the area from the west.  There is also large ridge over mid-central Canada so there is no interaction from the jet that could push this through for the foreseeable future.  

Temperatures will be consistently warm in the low to mid 70's throughout the week.  It will steadily rise a few degrees as the week progress from the warm air advection pushing its way north from the south.  With the clear skies and light winds occurring during the night, temperatures will drop down near the dew points posing the threat for fog in the mornings for this week.  According to the models, the next chance of rain appears to be early to mid next week from a cyclone that hasn't made landfall yet in the north Pacific.
