Good Monday morning!
We started off cold this morning with frost and temperatures near freezing in many places. This afternoon will be sunny and seasonable. One of the better days of the week!
Meanwhile, the remnants of Patricia are sitting along the Gulf Coast this morning. As that low pulls north, it will merge with a “regular” area of low pressure, resulting in a pretty potent Fall storm moving through the Midwest.
Clouds will thicken across the Valley on Tuesday but we will likely stay dry during the daylight hours. The rain will spread in from the south by evening and it will likely start raining in most pf the Valley between 8pm and midnight.
As the storm tracks to our west, it will be a windy and mild day but showers will be around….most numerous in the morning. Even though the rain will be most likely in the morning….there may be spotty thunderstorms around in the afternoon.
Rainfall totals are likely to average abut an inch from Tuesday night through Wednesday. The SREF model, which now contains 26 “members” has an average of 1.2″ with some members showing 1.5″ or so:
Behind the cold front, a windy and chilly day Thursday with times of clouds and sun. A shower or two is possible. It will feel a good 15 degrees colder than Wednesday.
A better day! Chilly, yes…but nothing unusual for October 30. Will be dry for football in the evening and for any Halloween parties you may be off to!
At this point, Saturday looks like a pretty good day for Halloween with some sun and highs in the 50s. Evening temperatures in the upper 40s.
At this early stage, it looks like Sunday will be the lousier half of the weekend with showers possible.
The pattern looks to favor some mild air as we head into November:
