DETAILED FORECAST DISCUSSION – Meteorologist Jenn Harcher

Showers taper to pockets of drizzle overnight with plenty of clouds around. Temperatures will dip to around 40 by day break. A cloudy start Wednesday with breaks of sunshine emerging in the afternoon. Finally a dry day and we’re warmer with highs in the mid 50s.

Another round of more widespread rain will roll in Thursday due to remnants of Zeta. The heaviest band of rain is shifting southward with the latest model run. Unfortunately Thursday looks to be a wash. If the heavier rain moves north there is the potential of localized flooding.

Sunshine returns just in time for Halloween. Dry, cool conditions for the ghosts and goblins heading out.

It’ll be a spooky Halloween night as a full hunter’s “blue” moon will be bright. An additional fright, daylight savings ends that night! Sunrise at 6:53 AM and sunset at 5:04 PM Sunday November 1st. No sunshine in the forecast, rain develops and colder air crashes in. Say it ain’t snow! Oh yes, a few snowflakes may affect our eastern suburbs/higher elevations Sunday night/Monday morning.
