SATURDAY

We remain chilly and dry Saturday. Highs only reach upper 40s in the mountains with low 50s elsewhere. Look for sunny skies early with more clouds building late in the day. Halloween night will be Spooktacular with temperatures starting in the upper 40s around sunset, falling to the mid 40s through the evening.

Late Saturday night, a cold front will enter the area from the west bringing a few showers along with mostly cloudy skies.

TURN CLOCKS BACK OCTOBER 31: Remember to set your clocks back one hour (fall back) before bedtime Saturday as we switch back to Eastern Standard Time. It’s also a good idea to check the smoke detector and weather radio batteries.

With the time change, the sunset will go from 6:22 p.m. on Saturday to 5:21 p.m. on Sunday.

SUNDAY

As a cold front moves through, a few showers are possible Sunday morning. Then, skies quickly turn partly cloudy during the afternoon. Winds increase from the west at 15 to 25 mph. Highs reach the low 60s.

Frost and freezing temperatures at night will become more prevalent over the next several days with even a hard freeze Sunday night. For the mountains, the growing season has ended, however a significant portion of the area is expected to fall into the 20s.

A few rain showers are possible early Sunday morning, clearing during the afternoon.
