A busy Halloween week of weather

Good Sunday, folks. We’re wrapping up the final weekend of October on another chilly note. This chilly will soon give way to a bit of a mild up as we head into the new week. That doesn’t last long as our weather pattern cranks up just in time for Halloween.

Skies today will feature a mix of sun and clouds with readings between 50 and 55 degrees. A nice breeze will make it feel cooler than that.

Moisture begins to return to the region on Monday and this may spark a scattered shower or two… especially across southern parts of the region. Highs will warm into the upper 50s to around 60 for many.

A slightly better chance for a shower or storm will be with us on Tuesday as a warm front lifts northward through the region. Temps will warm into the low 60s. Wednesday looks to be the mildest day with readings into the mid and upper 60s on a gusty southwesterly wind. A few showers and storms will develop as the day wears on.

This is ahead of a strong storm across the plains. That makes a run into the Great Lakes by Halloween, dragging a cold front into Kentucky:

That front will bring widespread showers and some thunder our way into Halloween. Winds will be a big time player with this system as temps crash behind the front. What does that mean for the little ones making their candy rounds on Halloween? Here’s the early forecast:

Chilly and drier air moves in for Friday as skies slowly clear. This will allow for another system to work in here over the weekend as our jet stream takes a big dip:

EuroThat setup will deliver another round of very cold air for the first few days of November. It may also give us a shot at seeing a few more early season flakes.

Have a great day and take care.
