A beach day? It depends on your tolerance for cold

    A Canadian air mass continues to dominate the region. Cool and mostly sunny today, with highs in the 50s and a dry westerly breeze at times making it feel cold, especially in the higher elevations. 

    So if you thought last night was chilly, get ready for tonight: overnight lows will drop a few more degrees. Clear skies and light winds will allow for maximum cooling.

    Pleasant conditions stick around through early next week. A southwesterly flow will develop Saturday, resulting in high temperatures a few degrees warmer. For Sunday, add a couple more degrees. Weekend overnight lows will be warmer, too. We could see some showers Tuesday night into Wednesday, Thursday (Halloween), and again next weekend. But as of today, the latest National Weather Service rainfall forecast calls for well under an inch over the next seven days, so at this point, no washout is expected.

    Most areas will experience high temperatures around 60 degrees Sunday through the upcoming workweek. Nights won’t be as chilly, too.
