Weekend Forecast: Dry And Cool Night For Halloween

Mid 70s felt pretty nice Thursday afternoon and with the sunshine it really was about as ideal as a late October day gets. There was still that wind, but it was warm.

Friday morning is colder, but not cold and the afternoon will be cooler, but again not cold.

The weather continues to overall be quite nice and while we did see a rainy wind storm yesterday, that type of weather has been the exception, not the rule all fall.

Once again high pressure is going to dominate the weather during the upcoming five- to seven-day period with the only interruption a few showers, mostly north, on Sunday.

This pattern of dry weather will bring ideal conditions for the Halloween holiday. Temperatures on Saturday will only be in the lower 50s, and this means it will cool off to the 40s when the kids are out collecting their candy treats. Sunset is just after 5:30 Saturday so you’ll need lights by about 6 p.m. This is the last time the sun will set this late until sometime in February.

As I wrote, Sunday features more clouds and the chance of showers, but not very widespread. A dry, sunny and moderating trend next week has the potential to bring back at least one 70 degree day. More on that possibility next week. Have a great weekend.

Friday: Sunny, with a high in the upper 50s. Breezy.

Friday Night: Clear, with a low around 32.

Saturday: Sunny, with a high 50-55.

Sunday: Many clouds with some showers possible, mostly north. Highs in the 50s.

Monday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 60.

Tuesday: Mostly sunny, with a high in the lower 60s.
