PM Update: Cool start to a mainly pleasant weekend

The first full day of fall ended up as the coolest one we’ve seen since spring. Highs near 70 felt chillier thanks to consistent wind gusts out of the northwest around 25-30 mph. We’ll see the gusts die off with sunset and the weekend’s looking generally favorable for outdoor activities. You’ll just need to keep a watch on the chance for showers or storms late on Sunday.

Tomorrow (Saturday): Plan on lots of low-humidity sunshine. High temperatures will reach the low 70s. Winds lighter than today turn to come from the south at around 5 to 10 mph.

Sunday: A relatively sunny morning will turn cloudier with time. It will be partly to mostly cloudy in the afternoon as showers and storms approach. For now, it seems they’ll push across the area between about 3 pm and 8 pm, west to east. One or two storms could be strong, with the potential for damaging winds. Highs will mainly end up around 80 or into the low 80s. Winds will blow from the south around 10 mph, with higher gusts.
