Forecast: More Sun Less Spook
Rather cool again today but milder & dry for Halloween
If you found the howling winds and dreary skies of the last several days scary, fear no more. High pressure building into the area will foster milder temperatures and more sunshine over the next several days. In fact, if you ask me, weather on Halloween will be nearly ideal, with nothing whatsoever spooky about the temperatures (into the 60s) or sky conditions -- with a conspicuous absence of clouds. Mild weather continues into Saturday before temperatures drop again by the start of next week.
Sunny & less windy. Mid 50s. In contrast to yesterday's windy, mostly cloudy skies, conditions today will be more palatable: we're talking plenty of sunshine and lighter winds (in the 10-15 mph range). Though high temperatures may only be a few degrees higher than yesterday's, the difference will feel more pronounced than that.
Tonight, clear skies and lighter winds will produce temperatures nearly as low as they've been so far this fall, with lows ranging from the upper 20s across the cooler spots to the mid 30s downtown.
Keep reading for the forecast for Halloween and through the beginning of next week.
Mostly sunny & mild. Mid 60s. Despite the symbolism of it being October 31st, there will be nothing out of the ordinary as you head to work today or trick or treat tonight. Abundant sunshine will warm temperatures to almost exactly normal levels for this time of year -- mid 60s during the afternoon; 50s during the evening; 40s overnight -- with clear skies prevailing.
Plenty of sunshine along with mild air from the south ahead on Saturday, will allow for a very nice day for outdoor activities with afternoon highs in the mid-to-upper 60s. More clouds and breezy conditions, however, may pay the area a visit on Saturday night, as overnight lows drop into the low-to-mid 40s. Confidence: Medium-High
Though we'll hold on to plenty of sunshine for Sunday, winds from the northwest will foster cooler temperatures. I think that means we'll top out in the mid-to-upper 50s -- certainly jacket-worthy, especially in the shade. On Sunday night mostly clear skies will allow temperatures to drop to the upper 30s in areas to the north and west and to the low to mid 40s downtown. Confidence: Medium
The outlook for back-to-work Monday is for partly to mostly sunny skies with temperatures remaining at slightly below-normal levels; meaning highs in the upper 50s with overnight lows in the low 40s. Confidence: Medium
