The rain moves out and the sunny, cooler weather moves in….As we move through this Wednesday evening, a cold front will sweep through the area, giving way to scattered showers and possibly a couple of thunderstorms. Otherwise, expect mostly cloudy skies with overnight low temperatures in the mid and upper 60s. On Thursday, a lingering shower is possible along the coast in the morning. But most of us will be dry as we move through the day, with high temperatures in the upper 70s. The cooler weather will finally arrive by Friday. We’re expecting highs in the mid 60s under mostly sunny skies. On Halloween, more sunshine is in the works. Highs will be in the low to mid 60s. By the time we’re trick-or-treating, skies will be partly cloudy with temperatures in the mid and upper 50s. Also, don’t forget! Set your clocks back one hour before going to bed Saturday night.  Daylight Saving Time ends.
