WET & STORMY
Widespread rain continues through mid afternoon today, with heavier pockets of rain embedded at times.  As a warm front lifts north, we do warm up a bit with rain breaking up to scattered showers and downpours for late afternoon.  We warm into the upper 60s with a mild breeze.

By evening, as some energy passes aloft and a front pushes east we could see some strong thunderstorms, with best chances from 7PM-12AM, although the threat will linger into 2AM.  These may produce isolated damaging winds or tornados, so remain alert.

WEEKEND
Saturday looks mostly sunny to partly cloudy with highs in upper 50s.  Halloween plans look great for trick-or-treating, it’s cool and in the lower 50s and upper 40s.  Sunday, clouds return, but it’s mainly dry with highs in the middle 60s.

NEXT WEEK
We may start with some showers on Monday with mostly cloudy skies.  Highs are near 60°.  We hold on to the mild air with mid 60s and shower chances for Tuesday as well.

DAYLIGHT SAVING ENDS
Saturday night is the end of daylight saving time.  Don’t forget to change any manual clocks back one hour before bed.  Also, it’s a good time to check the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms.

SO LONG
Folks, it’s been a great three years with you.  I appreciate your kindness and trust.  It’s been a wonderful honor to serve you as the morning meteorologist with FOX43.  I will miss you and all of my co-workers.  Thanks for the memories!  -Jeff
