Forecast: Gloomy weather returns
But nicer weather is back by late week
FORECAST IN DETAIL
A series of weather disturbances will be trekking through our region over the next forty-eight hours. Clouds, rain, cool winds from the east, and generally unpleasant conditions will prevail through this period. Improvement is expected by Thursday and Friday with more sunshine and high temperatures potentially making a run for the 70s. What about Halloween Saturday? A showery start may give way to clearing skies for trick-or-treaters...
Today (Tuesday): Dense overcast, periods of mainly light rain, and cool temperatures will keep this day on the raw side overall. Look for highs ranging from the upper 50s to low 60s with a breeze from the east and northeast . Precipitation probability is around 70%. Confidence: Medium-High
Tonight: The rain likely becomes more steady this evening (80% chance). Not good news for the high heel race at 9 p.m. A damp wind from the east will continue, but low temperatures should hold in the 50s for most of the region. Confidence: Medium-High
Keep reading for the forecast through the weekend...
Tomorrow (Wednesday): More rain is expected Wednesday as the final disturbance moves through the area. Temperatures have a chance to get a bit higher as the winds come from the southeast. Look for low-to-mid 60s for highs along with a 70% probability of continuing rain, probably tapering off by or during the afternoon. Confidence: Medium
Tomorrow Night: Clouds remain but we'll just have a small (30%) chance of some lingering light rain or drizzle. Temperatures will remain mild with lows in the low-to-mid 50s. Confidence: Medium
Thursday and Friday look very similar right now with more sunshine and temperatures returning higher to the upper 60s to low 70s. Lows should range in the upper 40s to low 50s. The only risk to this period could be some lingering cloud cover on Thursday morning and the chance of some showers developing late Friday night. Confidence: Medium-High
Showers are possible (40% chance) to begin Halloween Saturday with partial clearing by midday. With a cold front in our vicinity, it's not out of the question that (30% chance) a few more showers or even thundershowers develop later in the day, with mild highs near 70. Saturday evening should turn dry and breezy with temperature falling into the mid-40s to near 50. Confidence: Low-Medium
Behind the cold front, partly to mostly sunny skies are anticipated Sunday . Daytime temperatures should get pushed back into the low 60s with Sunday night levels in the 40s again. Confidence: Low-Medium
A peek at next week suggests a cooler-than-normal start to November, but more warming is expected to return by mid-to-late next week as our autumnal variability is seen continuing.Confidence: Low
