Dry and cool for Halloween, then rain moves in….As we move through this weekend, it’s going to be quite a treat for a lot of us. Not only is it Halloween, but we’re also looking forward to an extra hour of sleep! We’ll get to that in just a moment. But as we move through our Saturday, expect high temperatures in the low and mid 60s under a mix of sun and clouds. By the time we’re trick-or-treating Saturday evening, skies will be mostly clear and at times partly cloudy with temperatures in the mid and upper 50s. Be safe!

On Sunday, we’ll be a tad warmer with highs in the lower 70s.  We’ll see a good deal of clouds building over us through the day, all ahead of our next frontal system that arrives into Monday. Now, while a few isolated showers are possible Sunday afternoon, most of the rain will arrive Sunday night through Monday. A couple of lingering showers are possible early Tuesday before the sun returns. Highs next week will climb into the mid 70s.

And hey, don’t forget! Set your clocks back one hour before going to bed Saturday night.  Daylight Saving Time ends.

Tonight: Mostly Clear and Chilly. Overnight low temperatures in the mid 40s. Winds: N 5-10 mph.

Halloween: Mostly Sunny and Mild. High temperatures in the low and mid 60s. Winds: NE-SE 5-10 mph.
