It is going to be a really nice day and an absolutely fantastic evening for all of the trick-or-treaters running around the neighborhood. Today will be sunny with high temps in the mid to upper 50s. This evening will be clear with just a light breeze. Trick-or-Treat temperatures will start in the low 50s at 5 pm and gradually fall into the mid 40s by about 8 pm.
Dry, mild weather will stick around through tomorrow and then our weather pattern will begin to change with several systems impacting the region over the weekend and into next week.
Our first system will bring scattered showers to parts of the region Thursday night into Friday morning. Rainfall amounts will be relatively light – a few hundredths of an inch or less. In addition, a few places could catch a few snowflakes late Thursday night into Friday morning, but again amounts will be light with no accumulation expected. Showers will end early Friday morning but Friday will remain mostly cloudy with cooler high temps in the mid to upper 40s.
The next system will roll in Saturday and will be carrying a bit more moisture than the first. Saturday will be cloudy and cooler with rain. Rainfall amounts will generally be in the 0.10 to 0.20 inch range but some places could get 0.25 inch or even a little more. There could be snow mixed in with the rain at times, but at this point it looks like snowfall amounts will be relatively light.
Finally, there is yet another system that could bring light rain and perhaps a little snow late Monday into Tuesday. Temperatures will stay below average – in the low to mid 40s – through the middle of next week.
