Halloween: Tuesday, will start out with plenty of clouds, but the sun will come out in the afternoon. It will be a blustery day with high temperatures in the middle to upper 50s. There is also a high fire danger threat due to the dry conditions and ground. A Fire Weather Warning is in effect, so NO burning!
Trick-or-Treating Forecast: The kids will want to make sure they have a warm sweatshirt or jacket under their costumes on Tuesday evening. Temperatures will be in the 50s at 6 PM, but they will fall to the 40s by 8 PM.
On Wednesday, a reinforcing shot of colder air will arrive in the morning. We start out the day with temperatures in the 20s and 30s. It will be very breezy, so the wind chill will be in the teens and 20s. You will need to bundle up!
