FORECAST IN DETAIL
The bad news: a cloudy Halloween weekend ahead with a decent chance of rain at some point. The good news: temperatures remain on the mild side today and especially tomorrow, and the threat of steadier rain should hold off until Saturday night. But will it wait until after trick-or-treat time?
Today (Friday): Some patchy mist or drizzle could wetten your face or windshield this morning. Any precipitation should dissipate by midday though. Yet cloudy skies will likely prevail through the day as an onshore breeze from the southeast locks in the moisture overhead. Expect so-so highs in the low 60s -- you know, not really chilly but not warm either. Just kinda.. mehh. Confidence: Medium-High
Tonight: Overcast skies remain. Temperatures fall very slowly toward the mid-50s as winds shift to southerly. I can't rule out some drizzle or mist in the early-morning hours. Confidence: Medium-High

Tomorrow (Saturday): Our streak of grey continues for Halloween day. Skies could have a couple peeks of sun. But overall, mostly cloudy with the chance of an isolated shower or two through the morning. Winds from the south around 10-20 mph send highs shooting for the mid-70s. In the afternoon, a few showers are possilbe (30% chance for any given location) as a cold front approaches from the west. Confidence: Low-Medium
Tomorrow Night: Shower chances stay around 30% during the evening with comfortable temperatures dropping through the 60s. Any showers may be light and scattered enough to limit their impact on trick-or-treaters. But that's not an iron-clad guarantee. Overnight, shower chances go higher, to at least 60% or so. We may even see an area of steady rain develop. Confidence: Low-Medium
Sunday: Wish I had better news. Occasional showers or possibly an extended period of rain threaten to dampen the first half of Sunday before diminishing in the afternoon. The rain combined with cloudy skies could limit highs to the 50s. Confidence: Low-Medium
A note of clarity will end our weekend as skies finally clear Sunday night with dry conditions and lows ranging from the upper 30s to low 40s (suburbs) to low-to-mid 40s (downtown). Bye-bye clouds. But, brrr! Confidence: Medium
Sunshine on Monday with little to no chance of rain, and highs around 60. Nice and autumn-like! We'll all need a good dose of sun after all these cloudy days. Confidence: Medium
We'll probably see a fair amount of sun again on Tuesday with highs again near 60. Though a period of clouds with a small chance of a shower is possible as a cold front comes through. Confidence: Medium
