Weather Forecast

Halloween today will be chilly, and Windy, with a capital "W". Southerly winds will gust over 30 mph on the plains, so costumes need to be "wind proof". Trick or Treat temperatures will be in the 40's and 30's, and it feeling colder with the wind chill.

The weekend will be warmer, then another cold front drops temperatures to start next week. but dry weather continues into early November. And one last thing for the weekend: Remember to set your clocks back one hour Saturday night.
