April 27: An OK day to ride

Thursday: like Wednesday, maybe. In the sense that meteorologists predict bad weather but it all turns out okay.

Or more than okay. Because Wednesday was beautiful! Meteorologists wrong! We give it a retroactive 3.25 stars.

THURSDAY WEATHER INFOGRAPHIC:

Note a new infographic innovation: rain chance probability. Part of our effort to be more transparent about weather uncertainty.

All day: High 54, low 44, cloudy, windy, and possibly rainy.

The breakdown:

Morning: low 50s, 50% chance of rain, wind from the west at 14 MPH. There’s a near 100% chance of rain really early–5-6 AM–so roads will be wet.

Evening: low 50s, cloudy, wind from WSW at 16 MPH.

Pretty windy out there. Hold onto your lettuce.

DIVVY REPORT: Sedgewick & Schiller back online. We also just noticed Chappel Ave. and 79th has been closed since April 14th. Oops. But if that’s your station, you probably knew already.

Everything else: in service.
