SHOWERS:  We start the day with added clouds and some spotty showers.  Today, we start to cool off after yesterday’s near record warmth.  This morning we drop and then hold near 60° for the afternoon as cooler air slides in, battling any warming from the sun.  It’s mostly cloudy, with showers around until fading by evening.  Overnight, we drop to the lower 40s with clouds breaking.

RAIN CHANCES

FIRST BATCH:  The first batch of cooler air settles in tonight for Thursday and Friday.  Highs will top out in the middle 50s both days.  Thursday is partly cloudy and dry. Friday, for Halloween, it’s a bit cloudier.  The day looks dry but as we move toward our late evening plans we could see some showers.  The rain slips through overnight, with a few novelty flakes mixing in for the elevations as the second wave of colder air drives in.

WEEKEND CHILL:  The second batch of cold air is here for the weekend. Saturday starts near 40° with a finish only in the middle 40s.  It’s mostly cloudy with gusty wind driving in the cold air.  Expect some showers as energy from the next system transfers to the coast.  Sunday, we start in the lower 30s and top out in the upper 40s.  Expect more sunshine with the breeze still kicking around for us.

NEXT WEEK:  By Monday, the sun keeps shining and we keep warming.  Temps climb to the middle 50s.  Tuesday, for Election Day, we’ll see mostly sunny skies with highs in the lower 60s.

DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME ENDS: This Sunday at 2AM, we close out Daylight Saving Time.  Before you head to bed Saturday night, remember to change back those clocks by one hour.  Enjoy the extra hour of sleep!
