  • Spotty showers to the west tonight
  • Dry air moves in Sunday
  • Models pointing towards colder air next week

TONIGHT

As the upper level low pressure system lingers over the region, so do the rain chances. A few scattered showers will linger in the western mountains tonight. Clouds coverage may begin to decrease overnight east of the Blue Ridge. This could open the door for visibility of the aurora on the horizon! Lows will fall into the 40s to low 50s.

SUNDAY (HALLOWEEN)

As the storm departs, rain chances decrease considerably by Sunday. Skies will remain partly to mostly cloudy with highs in the 50s and low 60s. Winds also turn breezy thanks to a rapid pressure rise behind the storm.

Trick-or-treaters should plan for breezy, dry and cool conditions as they head up and down the streets in search of candy. You can leave the umbrellas behind along with the heavy jackets. Temperatures will likely be in the upper 50s around sunset Sunday.

We'll see decreasing clouds with cool temperatures.

Cold air will certainly move, but questions remain on our rain chances. Some models even indicate a chance of snow to the west with cold air catching up to moisture! This is a forecast you should keep up to date on. In addition, we could see our first widespread freeze of the season—a little later than usual!
