CLEVELAND (WJW) — The start of October was cooler than normal. So why has the pattern become warmer this week?

The answer lies in the tropical Pacific, which has been in a favorable phase for warmth across the eastern U.S. “How long does this last?” is the question.

Friday will be cool with highs in the mid to upper 50s and a mix of sun and clouds through the afternoon.

The weekend will remain quiet and feel a bit warmer.

Our next system will move in late Sunday bringing the chance for a few showers, mainly after sunset, and continuing into Monday.

Rain gear might have to be worked into our Halloween costumes this year. BOOOO!

Here’s the latest trick-or-treat forecast for our ghosts and goblins:

Overall, there’s little sign of extreme cold over the next 10 days.
