A cold front approaching from the west will trigger scattered showers this evening, especially areas to the north. After midnight, showers become more isolated as the probability of rain drops down to 20%. Winds will blow from the northwest tonight at around 10 mph. Low temperatures will bottom out in the low 40s for most.

It wouldn't be a bad idea to bag any leaf piles this evening because the winds will increase Sunday. It will be breezy all day with winds gusting up to 30 mph from the northwest. There will be more clouds than sun, but most of the day will be spent dry. A few isolated showers are possible, especially before noon. Max temperatures will be cooler, with highs in the low 50s.

High pressure builds in on Monday and winds shift out of the south. Highs will be near 60 under mostly sunny skies.

Tuesday will be the peak of the warmth with highs on either side of 70. The day itself will be dry, but showers will be in the area during the evening and overnight as our next storm system arrives. If you like the warmth, then Tuesday is the day to really savor because it will turn much colder by the end of the week.

There will be lots of clouds and showers overhead on Wednesday, especially in the morning. High temperatures will still be above average as most communities will be near 60 degrees. It will turn much colder on Thursday with highs in the low 50s under partly cloudy skies.

Halloween is an interesting day. There will be lots of clouds around the Tiers. Showers will threaten during the evening when folks are out trick-or-treating. Temperatures will max out near 50 for most, and then cool into the 30s overnight. There is a question as to how cold we will get Friday night. Some indications in the models show we may get cold enough to support some snow showers. There is still some time between now and then to nail down the details but none the less, there are no significant hazards anticipated at this time.

The rest of next weekend will be cold with highs near 40 under lots of clouds and perhaps some rain/ snow showers.
