Dry for Halloween

Any showers than linger into Monday morning should dissipate as the morning wears on. It will remain cloudy much of the day, but a little sun may work its way out late in the afternoon.

By the time dark falls, skies will be in the process of turning clear.

With the clouds remaining thick most of the day, temperatures will be cool. Most areas will see a high Monday afternoon in the mid 40s.

As skies clear in the evening, the temperature will drop into the 30s. Trick-or-treating will be a chilly affair this year, but it will at least remain dry.


Warm Week Ahead

After Monday, the remainder of the upcoming week looks quite mild.

Temperatures will be near 60 degrees on Tuesday and Thursday. Wednesday will be the warmest day though, with highs approaching 70 degrees.

Temperatures will return to average by the end of the week.

The best chance for rain will on Thursday as a cold front moves through. A few showers may also be possible on Wednesday, but generally speaking, it will be a fairly dry week.
