WARM TO WET: An eerily foggy and misty start will give way to a spooktacularly mild afternoon as a warm front nudges north, allowing a warm and moist air mass into the state. Expect highs today to top out in the middle to upper 60s under cloudy skies. As the warm front passes, a few showers may roll through late morning into the midday time frame.
Rain will be precariously close as you trick-or-treat this evening. On a good note, we’re mild and cloudy with temps in the low to middle 60s. On the down side, some of you may have to deal with rain. We do expect the bulk of the wet weather to begin around midnight, and last until midday Friday.
The rain ends by midday Friday and then we break the clouds a bit. The cold air holds off for a day too, so we’ll warm to 70° on Friday! A breeze kicks in tonight and lasts through Friday, with gusts in the 30mph range.
WEEKEND: We hold onto the clouds Saturday, but the first batch of cooler air slips in. Highs only make it to 60°. Sunday, it’s a bit less cloudy, but we’ll see the temps drop again as the coldest core of air settles in. The breeze picks up too, adding insult to injury. Highs are only in the low 50s.
NEXT WEEK: Monday starts chilly in the 30s and ends only near 50°. We’ll see much more sunshine though. Tuesday, clouds slip back in but we warm a bit more, to the middle 50s. By Wednesday, we’re watching another system to our west but it looks like we stay dry for now. We warm to the 60s with rain possible to close out the week.
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.
Have a safe night trick-or-treating and be sure to grab the rain gear just in case!
