The first big storm of the season will bring rain and winds to our area on Halloween...adding to the spook factor! A chance for drizzle during the morning hours will be possible from the deep marine layer. Beyond that, a few showers will be possible during the afternoon hours before the main front arrives at night. That's when we'll be treated to a few hours of steady rainfall and possible thunderstorms. The forecast models are still predicting between .5" & 1", with even higher amounts possible in the mountains.
With the heaviest rainfall ending before sunrise on Saturday, our weather will turn showery for the first part of the day on Saturday as some moisture lingers behind the main cold front. Additional rainfall totals will be light on Saturday as the rain will be hit or miss by this time. Temperatures on Saturday and Sunday will finally feel like fall, with daytime highs only warming into the 60s. The cool and crisp weather won't last long however as another round warm and dry days appears to be on the horizon for next week.
