It was a wet Sunday, and representative of what has ended up being a stormy October. The theme will continue through the last week of the month, as we see multiple chances of rain this week.
The rain has cleared out but clouds will take a little longer. Monday looks like a decent day, as cloudy conditions to start will give way to warmer temperatures and sunshine. Monday looks like one of the few days this week with no rain chances.
Guidance has shifted toward a weak system bringing shower chances on Tuesday and possibly into early Wednesday, but it doesn't look like a washout by any means. While Tuesday looks seasonable temperature wise with clouds and showers, especially later in the day and evening, Wednesday is looking nicer, with some brief clearing possible during the day and warming temperatures. That brings us to the most uncertain part of the forecast, Halloween.
The last day of October and the first day of November are looking stormy. There are still a lot of details that need to be resolved, especially the timing, but a big storm is expected to develop out in the Midwest and move to the northwest of the region.
Here's what we do know: we are expecting a period of moderate to heavy rain again, with breezy conditions. Trick or Treating isn't a lost cause yet...but things are not looking good as we currently expect rain Thursday afternoon into at least early Friday. The best hope for the little ones is a delay in the onset of the heaviest rain until late on Thursday. Temperatures are likely to end up in the 60s.
Early indications are that the weekend will be very nice in the wake of the storm. A cold front will pass, and that will clear things out. The first weekend of November is looking sunny and cooler with highs in the 50s.
Monday: Cloudy early with decreasing clouds over the course of the day. Highs in the low 60s.
Tuesday: Mostly cloudy with a chance of showers. Highs in the upper 50s to low 60s. Chance of rain 50%.
Wednesday: Mostly cloudy early with a few breaks possible. Highs in the mid to upper 60s.
Thursday: Mostly cloudy with a chance of rain. Highs in the upper 50s to low 60s. Chance of rain 60%
Friday: Mostly cloudy with a chance of rain early, followed by a gradual decrease in clouds. Highs in the low 60s.
Saturday: Mostly sunny and cooler. Highs in the low to mid 50s.
Sunday: Mostly sunny. Highs in the low to mid 50s.
