GOOD START: High pressure hangs on for another few days, bringing comfortable and dry weather into the picture for the start of the work week. Today is mainly sunny with temperatures reaching for the 60° mark. Tonight we cool into the mid to upper 30s. A pocket of slightly cooler air with a few more clouds nicks up with upper 50s for Tuesday.
NEXT SYSTEM: The next storm system will bring us rain Thursday into Friday. It ramps up in the Plains by midweek, spreading clouds into the area by Wednesday with maybe a few drops. Thursday, a warm front slides through with the cold front following on Friday. So expect low 60s Wednesday with partly cloudy skies. We’re mainly cloudy Thursday and warmer too with highs in the middle 60s. A few showers are possible in spots. Heaviest rain arrives overnight Thursday into Friday as the front passes. Rain ends my midday or early afternoon Friday. Highs will still hit the upper 60s as the colder air lags behind the passage of the cold front.
HALLOWEEN NIGHT: For now, it looks mostly dry, but a few showers may dot the region. It’s mild though with temperatures hovering in the upper 50s to low 60s under mostly cloudy skies. Have the rain gear nearby and check the radar before you go. Trick or treat!
WEEKEND: Skies should gradually clear and the cooler air spills in as high pressure builds. Expect partly cloudy skies Saturday with highs near 60°. Sunday is much cooler with highs only in the low to middle 50s.
DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME ENDS: Saturday night before bed, don’t forget to switch the clocks back one hour. We move to standard time at 2AM Sunday morning. This is also a good time to ensure you’re batteries are fresh in your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms.
