FORECAST IN DETAIL

Happy Halloween everyone! Lucky for us, our weather is anything but ghoulish. A beautiful, cool fall day leads into a crisp evening for any trick-or-treaters out there. Following a dry cold frontal passage, our daytime highs take a dip into the week, but skies stay bright for several days.

Today (Sunday): Plenty more sun is in the forecast for your Sunday as we finish off a crisp fall weekend. For any marathoners out there, I suppose morning temps in the 40s and 50s would be nearly ideal. Our afternoon temps rise into the low-to-mid 60s. Winds from the west blow at around 10 mph. Confidence: High

Tonight: While not frightfully cold overnight, costumes with a little bulk to them might be advisable. Pleasantly cool trick-or-treating temperatures mostly in the 50s tumble into the 30s to around 40 (downtown) for overnight lows with frost possible in the suburbs. A light wind from the north can be expected. Confidence: High

Keep reading for the forecast into the work week...

Tomorrow (Monday): November brings with it a reminder that it is autumn around here after all and that means some rather brisk days. Plenty of sun shines down on us but temperatures struggle to respond, with highs only reaching the low-to-mid 50s. Light winds from the north blow periodically. Confidence: High

Tomorrow Night: There's more chill in the air overnight. Skies full of stars once again allow our lows to dip into the 30s. Confidence: High

A LOOK AHEAD

Cool Canadian high pressure remains in control Tuesday and Wednesday which for us, means two things. One, skies stay mostly sunny, and two, our temperatures remain a tad on the cool side, with highs in the mid-50s. Our night time conditions bring overnight lows in the mid-30s to lower 40s (downtown). Confidence: Medium-High

By Thursday we begin to see some changes in the forecast. A developing low pressure center offshore clutters our skies with additional clouds and a few showers could come our way. Temperatures should remain in the mid-50s. Confidence: Medium

I could go for some lighter winds.
