Weather Forecast

This weekend will feature well above normal temperatures with high clouds at times.

A strong cold front moves in Sunday night, bringing more normal, cool late October weather during the first half of next week. There could be a few showers behind the cold front on Monday.

At this point, indications are that Halloween temperatures will be close to average, with highs in the mid 50s. That would give us Trick or Treat temperatures in the 40s and 30s.
