The forecast looks perfect for all of the little trick-or-treaters tonight. Sunset will be at 5:56 PM on this Halloween, with temperatures tumbling into the lower 50s by 8:00 PM. Dry weather will continue through much of Thursday, with some wet weather arriving by Thursday night.
A strong mid to upper level disturbance will be passing to our north on Thursday, across Missouri and Kentucky. While this will be a rather strong disturbance with lots of lift, moisture will be quite limited. Therefore, we don’t expect a huge rainmaker. Showers will be possible late Thursday and Friday but don’t look for an all night type rain event.
Late in the week the upper air wind pattern will become more southwesterly across the southeast. This will bring us a mix of clouds and sunshine for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. We’ve been watching for the possibility of rain for the weekend. This morning the models show the front responsible for that possible rain chance stalling to our north. This would mean milder temperatures and dry conditions through Sunday. We’ll keep you posted!
National Extremes: Sunday Highest Temp (95 Riverside, California); Sunday Lowest Temp (13 Westby, Montana), Sunday Lowest Wind Chill (-34 deadhorse, Alaska).
