The typical Fall rollercoaster of temperatures will return this week, along with a few good chances for rain over the next 7 days.
For Sunday night into Monday, a returning south wind has replaced the chilly arctic air with mild and warmer conditions. After a few nights below freezing everyone will stay above freezing tonight as most areas will fall into the mid 40s.
For Monday, the southwest breeze will continue to warm us up, as highs will comfortably reach the mid 70s in all areas. The southwest wind will be sometimes breezy up to 15 miles per hour and skies will remain mostly sunny.
A cold front will arrive late Monday into Halloween Tuesday. It will drop temperatures into the 60s as well as bring mostly cloudy skies. This front won’t produce much rain as lightly scattered rainfall will be possible in some areas, but most of the trick or treat festivities should remain dry.
A better chance for rain arrives Wednesday as warmer air is pushed over the cooler air at the surface. This will result in scattered rain and possibly a few thunderstorms during the day on Wednesday.
A stagnant weather patter late this week will keep slight to scattered rain chances in the forecast Thursday and Friday along with temperatures returning to the low 80s.
Rain totals through Friday will be in the .5 inch to 1 inch range.
