Weather forecast: Picture perfect autumn weather today

Some of Fall’s finest weather is in store from hilltop to lakeshore today. Look for a good supply of sunshine, and a gentle breeze this afternoon with temperatures topping out in the upper 60s.

Tonight looks just fine as well with just a few clouds. Temperatures won’t be as low dropping only into the middle and upper 50s.

WEEKEND: Expect a “50-50” affair with Saturday being the milder of the two weekend days and Sunday being the cooler. Saturday will also end up being quite breezy as a cold front approaches. Before the front actually arrives temperatures on Saturday will climb well into the 70s! Savor it, and relish it, as a cold front will arrive in the afternoon. This front will serve as a trigger mechanism for a few showers and possible even an isolated thunderstorm later Saturday or Saturday evening. In the wake of this front we can expect a sharply cooler breeze from the northeast on Sunday with clouds giving way to at least some partial sun. Highs will be back into the upper 50s! Temperatures will remain above average with an unsettled start to the new week as remnants of post tropical system Delta arrive sparking some widespread rain especially into Tuesday next week.
