5:43 pm
up and the chance of a couple showers, but still fairly warm, because that cold front will not have passed through until tomorrow night. here's a look at the clear skies tonight, watch the clouds from the coast come on in and there's that front to our west which moves in later on. first some showers off the ocean are possible during the morning hours, and then tomorrow afternoon and evening, showers from the system to our west roll through, maybe a downpour or two in some locations. wednesday it's breezy and it's cooler, but still some sun and clouds back and forth. a spot shower or two particularly north and west of the lakes region. thursday it cooler still, but we've got more sunshine at least on the way. so stepping downward, day by day. here's the jet stream bringing up the warm weather, that's why it's so warm today, and part of tomorrow as well. but this dip in the secret stream moving in later in the week, and it's coolest over the upcoming weekend, when it dips down over us. and then starts to pull out again, so next week not quite as
5:44 pm
warm as today, but get is a little better. if you're heading out this evening, very nice, clear skies, quite pleasant. a very slow cooldown overnight, 55 to 65, for the evening hours, then it does chill off but only into the fowrlts most places. 30's farther to the north. there's your guide for the rest of the week, 70's again tomorrow, 60's in the northern elsewhere. so not as warm as today, not quite as nice, but still the warmer weather will be around. by the time we get to the weekend we're in the 50's on saturday with scattered showers and highs in the 40's on sunday. so that will be a different story. tom: los angeles dodger infielder chase itly is not in the starting playoff in tonight's playoff game. jean: he is eligible to play while he appeals his suspension for what the league called an illegal slide that broke the leg of the shortstop. the man being called the most
