September 14th, 2012 Forecast

After an absolutely fantastic week, our weekend has one minor blemish but will overall be a great introduction weekend to autumn.  As Tom said this morning, today and through the weekend will feature "continued awesomeness", before some precipitation moves in next week.  The aforementioned blemish could impact some high school football games Friday night, so be sure to check back for the Friday Night Lights forecast, coming tonight.

Tonight look like another great night to leave the windows open.  Temperatures in the mid to upper 50's around the city, reaching into the lower 60's to the south and east.  Skies remaining mostly clear and feeling comfortable throughout the night.  Tomorrow looks like it's a little warmer, but still under brilliant sunshine.  Highs around the city and to the south and east into the lower to mid-80's.  Towards the north and west, maybe not even getting out of the 70's.  Both tonight and tomorrow, winds will be out of the south at 5 to 10 mph.

Towards the latter end of Friday, there is a chance of isolated shower.  I don't think it'll be enough to warrant canceling any games or moving any outdoor plans, but you might want to pack an umbrella or poncho, just in case.  Saturday, the skies clear up nicely and it'll be mostly sunny.  Temperatures drop slightly, back into the upper 70's.  Sunday, the temperature drop continues, back into the mid-70's, with a distinct possibility of highs around the Poconos not making it out of the 60's.  Monday will start out mostly sunny but will start to cloud up.  Scattered showers will move in towards the evening and persist overnight, into Tuesday.  A gloomy Tuesday will be on tap, as we have to pay for this brilliant sunshine at some point in time.  Scattered showers will stick around throughout the day with temperatures hovering around 80-degrees.  Some showers stick around for Wednesday, although skies will be partly sunny.  Thursday will feature more sun and clearing to mostly sunny skies.
