This cold and wet weather will be best suited for indoor activities the next few days. Rain will prevail for much of Tuesday with steady showers setting in during the afternoon and evening. The rain will extend into Wednesday as well.
Because of how cool it will be both days (temperatures in the 40s and 50s), severe weather is not expected. A few thunderstorms will likely develop, but they will stay below severe limits.
With a reinforcement of cold air late Wednesday, the concern shifts to an early season freeze - the first of the season. A Freeze Watch will be in effect from late Wednesday night to Thursday morning. Take the necessary precautions between now and then to protect your plants, cover any exposed pipes, and turn off the sprinklers.
The Halloween forecast will be cold in the morning with temperatures starting close to freezing. A northwest wind will blow between 10 and 20 mph for most of the day, but should begin to diminish as we get to trick-or-treating hours.
Plan on having an extra layer or two under the kids' costumes! Temperatures will be in the upper 40s for the start of trick-or-treating and will drop to the lower 40s by the time it wraps up. Wind chill values will mostly be in the upper 30s to lower 40s.
