A sunny and seasonal Halloween… It will be chilly again this morning but not as windy as yesterday. Temperatures will start in the 40s this morning with a few 50s near the coast. We will see plenty of sunshine today with highs warming into the mid to upper 60s, near normal for this time of year.

Cloud cover will increase and temperatures will warm for the end of the work week. Expect partly cloudy skies Wednesday with highs near 70. A stray shower is possible but overall chances will be low. Clouds will continue to build for Thursday with isolated showers possible. Highs will warm into the mid 70s. Sunshine returns on Friday with highs in the mid to upper 70s.

Tropical Update

A weak non-tropical area of low pressure located about 1000 miles ESE of Bermuda is producing limited shower and thunderstorm activity. Strong upper-level winds and dry air are expected to limit any development of subtropical or tropical characteristics with this system during the next couple of days while it meanders over the central Atlantic Ocean between Bermuda and the Azores.
