FORECAST IN DETAIL

Hope you got out to the pumpkin patch yesterday, as today is one best spent indoors carving them up. Periods of cool rain today are followed by more rain and strong winds tonight as low pressure strengthens off the Mid-Atlantic coast. This too shall pass, with a sunnier but still breezy Monday and a pleasantly cool Halloween forecast.

Today (Sunday): Occasional showers could be accompanied by a thunderstorm as well. We’ll see our highest temperatures this morning, mainly in the low 60s, before a cold front drops them into and through the 50s later this morning into the afternoon. A steadier rain may develop late afternoon into evening. Winds aren’t too bad through most of the day, only about 10 mph with some higher gusts, but they should start to increase toward evening as the storm starts to crank up off the coast. Confidence: Medium-High

Tonight: Steadier and heavier rain is likely this evening as winds ramp up quickly. We’re talking sustained winds from the northwest about 15 to 25 mph through the night, with gusts nearing 45 mph potentially causing isolated to scattered power outages. The rain should turn more showery again overnight with clouds starting to break up toward sunrise. Temperatures fall through the 40s, reaching overnight lows in the upper 30s to low 40s. Confidence: Medium-High

Tomorrow (Monday): Aside from the chance of a lingering early-morning shower, Monday looks to be considerably brighter and drier. Mostly sunny skies should emerge by mid-morning, and with the feeling of fall surely in the air, highs are held to the upper 50s to low 60s. Winds from the west remain blustery, gusting near 30 to 35 mph before diminishing around dinnertime. Confidence: High

Tomorrow night: We remain mostly clear and cool, and as a bonus, winds relax to about 5 to 10 mph. Expect lows to fall into the upper 30s to low 40s. Confidence: High

A LOOK AHEAD

Your Halloween forecast is anything but spooky. Skies are clear and blue, and there’s just enough of a breeze to rustle up some leaves. Daytime highs rise to right about 60 degrees. And as long as your costume can adjust to long sleeves or a light jacket, your trick-or-treat forecast couldn’t get much better. Mostly clear skies give a great view of the moon as evening temperatures fall through the 50s, to overnight lows in the upper 30s to mid-40s. Confidence: Medium-High

By Wednesday, light winds from the south and an approaching warm front should help highs reach the low to mid-60s. Partly sunny morning skies may give way to increasing afternoon clouds, with a few light showers possible by evening. Confidence: Medium
