GOOD MORNING AND HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
We are wrapping up another warm month today, one that will end up about 5.5 degrees above average locally. Much of the lower 48 states had a warm October:
A nice Halloween today with high temperatures betwen 53-55. Lower 50s and upper 40s for trick-or-treaters this evening.
Another shot of unseasonably warm air is in the way as we start November. Check out these highs over the next couple of days:

We will be dry both days.
NEXT RAIN CHANCE
No raindrops until very late Wednesday night into parts of Thursday with our next cold front. That front will put an end to the silly early November warmth.
Quiet weather will return for Friday and the weekend. No concerns for wet weather as of now.
The air mass behind the front will be cooler but certainly not much colder than average. Highs Friday through the weekend may even be somewhat warmer than shown on both of these models.
Notice the chilly numbers that show up in the longer range. We are expecting the overall weather pattern to start favoring colder air over warmer air as we head deeper into November. Notice how different the pattern looks now vs what we expect in 2 weeks:
No big deal, right? It’s SUPPOSED to get cold in November. Well yes. However there is a chance that BEYOND two weeks from now the pattern turns MUCH colder and stormier. Our winter forecast will include a potentially stormy, cold period from Thanksgiving through New Year’s. Speaking of which…..
This is the week! My Winter 2016-2017 forecast will likely debut on Thursday. Tune into 21 News and check out my blog/social media next week for details.
