Much cooler conditions will be felt today with highs in the upper 50s North and Western areas to lower to mid-60s in other locations. These temperatures should be the same for Halloween. Trick or treating should be dry except possibly areas west of the mountains and into the western part of South Carolina, but it looks close to being all dry. Rain will be on the increase especially across the south where areas of western North Carolina and western South Carolina we’ll see heavier amounts on Sunday through Monday, with as much as 3 or more inches in South Carolina specifically. There are some model debates on how much rain will make it into Northern Virginia and Maryland Sunday into Monday so I will watch and see if this gets wetter or drier. The precipitation should clear by Monday evening setting the stage for a warmer than normal first week of November. Highs will generally be in the 70s with a possibility of a few 80s especially in the South. Long-term outlooks continue in mild to above normal in temperatures and above normal chances for precipitation. All for now.
