PM Update: Not too frightful tonight, and quite sunny tomorrow

Live Weather Updates from CWG’s Twitter Feed.

We saw lots of sun this Halloween, but the sky has been increasingly obscured by clouds as we move through the afternoon. That’s our story for the rest of the day and into the night, though at least temperatures are warmer than they’ve been. Today’s highs in the mid-and-upper 50s stay above freezing tonight and return to about there again tomorrow.


Radar & lightning: Latest regional radar shows movement of precipitation and lightning strikes over past two hours. Refresh page to update. Click here or on image to enlarge. Or see radar bigger on our Weather Wall.

Through Tonight: Clouds lower and thicken heading into the evening, but there should be no major worries for most or all trick-or-treat plans. It’s cool though once the sun goes down. By 8 p.m. or so, we introduce a slight (20-30% chance) of a brief shower or two, primarily over the southeast portions of the area and east of there. After that, it’s the same general story until a few hours after midnight, and we may begin to clear again by sunrise. With the clouds around, temperatures won’t drop as much as the last two nights. We can expect a range from the upper 30s to lower 40s most spots.

Tomorrow (Tuesday): Any clouds should be most numerous right around sunrise -- this looks like a day where sunshine rules. Highs should be rather similar to today, reaching the mid-50s to near 60. A breeze from the north, up to 10 mph sustained at times, is all that’s left of a little storm system moving by off the coast.

Florida flooding: The National Weather Service in South Florida announced an early start (Oct 1, or 18) to the dry season, and then it rained and rained and rained. South Florida was hit particularly hard over the weekend, where a corridor from Coral Gables to Fort Lauderdale saw as much as 10 inches or more. And it continues today with flash flood warnings up into the evening near Miami, where a severe storm potentially produced a tornado last night.

Pollen update from Walter Reed: Mold spores are in the LOW range at 1794.31 spores/cubic meter.
