Stray Showers; Warmer/Sunny Weekend

There will be more clouds around today along with a couple stray showers. Unfortunately, it will do little to alleviate the ongoing dryness. Sunshine returns for Friday and the weekend. Temperatures will be unseasonably mild through the period. Looking ahead, Halloween features scattered clouds with nice and mild Trick-or-Treating conditions.

Forecast Discussion

A cold front is tracking through the region this afternoon. It will generate more cloudiness and a couple of showers, although it will fail to produce meaningful rainfall amounts in the mountains.

High pressure will then settle in for Friday and Saturday, followed by a dry cold front coming through Sunday night or Monday morning. Temperatures will be unseasonably warm during this period, averaging more than 10-degrees above normal.

There really won’t be much of a temperature drop-off behind the front on Halloween. We expect more sun than clouds along with more warm weather, and that will facilitate some pleasant Trick-or-Treating for your favorite ghoul or goblin.

Looking ahead, no significant changes are in store. Dry, warm weather will continue. Maybe, just maybe, a weather system toward the conclusion of the weekend of November 5th-6th might be able to generate some badly-needed rainfall.
