A cold front will move across the area tonight. Most of the wet weather will stay to the north of us, but just keeping a slight 20 percent chance for a couple stray showers. Temperatures will fall into the upper 40s and low 50s.

A disturbance will move through on Monday. We should just see an increase in clouds, but just keeping a slight 20 percent chance once again for a stray shower. Temperatures will warm to the low and mid 60s. It will be a bit on the breezy side with winds out of the west. Gusts up to 25 mph are possible. Cooler Monday night with lows falling into the 40s.

High pressure will build in and continue to keep conditions dry on both Tuesday and Wednesday. It will be a bit cooler Tuesday with highs in the upper 50s and low 60s.

Warming up just in time for Halloween. We’ll see highs mainly in the low 70s under mostly sunny skies. The day is looking nice and dry for trick-or-treating. Temperatures will cool to the upper 50s to near 60 overnight.

Thursday will be the warmest day of the week. Temperatures will warm into the mid 70s, which is well above normal for this time of year. A cold front will move in late Thursday and Friday. Friday will be our wettest day of the week with on and off rain showers throughout the day. Luckily, it looks like the front will move out just in time for the weekend.
