Weekend looking damp... but Halloween isn't looking bad!
I must admit - it's stayed clearer for a longer period than I expected! I'm not complaining, that's for sure. Its a nice, slightly breezy, cool day as of this afternoon, but unfortunately, conditions look to deteriorate through this evening and especially into the overnight hours into tomorrow morning.
The Futurecast paints the picture nicely, depicting some fairly widespread showers settling in through the late evening. A scattered storm can't be ruled out in the early phase of this damp 24-36 hours, but I think for the most of us, it's just going to be very nice sleeping weather. Not the best conditions for early trick-or-treating, that's for sure!
Looking into Sunday morning, the first thing I thought when I saw the models was "It's going to be tough to wake up with such cozy weather". These showers from the overnight begin to become more scattered through Sunday, but odds still favor the lot of us seeing some rain through the day, especially as we're heading into church. Good news, though - they begin to fade through Sunday night.
Taking a big picture look through Monday, we can see that trend - we dry out, but stay a bit overcast. Now, the chance for a scattered shower is by no means totally zero through Monday, but I think that, by and large, we have some good news for Halloween evening.
If you don't mind a few spooky clouds (fitting!) through the evening, Halloween looks a lot like a typical fall day - by the time we're trick or treating, I reckon we're MOSTLY clear from the rain (can never rule out that highly scattered shower), and a little cool. We definitely got lucky, so go out and enjoy that Halloween!
Behind it is a fairly unremarkable week, but that's a good thing, no doubt - through Tuesday and into Wednesday, we stick with a few clouds, and perhaps even a shower or two by Wednesday, but the long-term is painting an interesting scene - and an almost spring-like one, at that, when it comes to temperatures...
Yeah, check this 7-day out - behind the midweek, we're climbing steadily back up into the mid to upper 70s, with clearer and clearer conditions with each passing day. You can even see how, despite it being the first week of November, the LOW temperatures are climbing closer to 60 by the end of this next week. I wish we had a little more rain to look forward to due to the drought, but all things being equal, I don't think anyone can complain about the week ahead.
