Thursday 10/29/20 AM Update

Good morning!

With cloudy skies and rain this afternoon and evening, expect a high around 46, with a calm wind. Expect somewhere around 1″ of rain today and tonight, with a low around 31, a north wind of 5-15 mph overnight, and rain changing over to snow late.

Anywhere from a coating to 3″ of snow is possible tomorrow morning, with accumulation likely done by late morning and all precipitation done early in the afternoon. I think we’ll be somewhere in the neighborhood of an inch or two of snow. In any instance, take it slow on the roads tomorrow morning.

Tomorrow will have a high around 37, with skies otherwise beginning to clear toward the later stages of the afternoon, along with a north wind of 5-15 mph. Friday night will turn clear and cold, with a low around 20, and a light northwest wind.

Going into the weekend, Saturday will be sunny and 43, with a light wind. For those who do partake in Halloween activities, you’ll want to wear warm layers, a face covering, and partake in social distancing as temperatures will be in the 30s during the evening with the wind staying light. Saturday night will be mostly clear and 26. We start off November with increasing clouds Sunday, along with a chance of afternoon showers and a high around 54. Showers end early Sunday night, with a low around 32 and partly cloudy skies. Monday will be mostly sunny with a high around 42. Going slightly outside of the five-day window, Monday night and Tuesday look to be very cold with a low near the 20 degree mark and highs in the middle 30s favored at this point. Things then warm up considerably toward the later stages of next week, with highs in the 60s a possibility next Thursday and Friday depending on how things play out after a day in the 50s Wednesday.

Wednesday 10/28/20

Thursday will be cloudy and 47, with rain in the afternoon and a calm wind. Thursday night will feature heavy rain at times, with a low around 32, and a north wind of 5-15 mph. Rain will mix with snow late, with a period of accumulating snow likely Friday morning starting just before sunrise, flipping back to rain by late morning. Expect total snowfall of a coating to 2″, and total rainfall of 1″ to 2″. This would be the first accumulating October snowfall since 2011 (more details at the end of this post).

All precipitation should end by early afternoon Friday, giving way to gradually decreasing clouds before sunset. Friday will be a remarkably cold day, with a high only around 37, along with a north wind of 5-15 mph, gradually calming during the evening. Friday night will be mainly clear, with a low around 21. Saturday will be sunny but cold for Halloween standards, with a high around 43. For those who do partake in Halloween activities, you’ll want to wear warm layers, a face covering, and partake in social distancing as temperatures will be in the 30s during the evening. The good news for Halloween is that wind should be calm or light. Please be responsible everyone; COVID cases are spiking right now and I realize the weather is less than ideal for gathering outdoors, but we’ve had worse weather on Halloween. Saturday night will have a low around 27, with mostly clear skies along with our “fall back” time change to begin the month of November. Sunday will have skies turning mostly cloudy, with a high around 54, along with a chance of afternoon showers.

Here’s a footnote on snow in October: If snow does indeed accumulate, this will be the first time we have seen accumulating snow in October since 2011, when 8.5″ of snow fell incidentally enough on the night of October 29 and morning of October 30. This would also be the fourth time the first snowfall has taken place in October in the last ten years; in addition to 2011-12 as noted, the first snowfalls of 2015-16 and 2018-19 took place in October (October 18, 2015 and October 27, 2018; both non-accumulating trace snowfalls). Incidentally enough, 2011-12 and 2015-16 ended up with well below average snowfall, and 2018-19 was an average winter for snowfall. That means absolutely nothing in relation to this winter, but is an interesting note.

Have a great day!

Going beyond that, highs in the 50s continue through the week, with the potential for highs in the 40s as a shot of cold air is likely around Halloween and into early November. It’s even possible that any of Sunday through Tuesday could be our first high temperature in the 40s since early May depending on how exactly things play out, as there is some variance in guidance as to how far into the 50s we reach each of those three days.
