Showers and thunderstorms will begin to develop this afternoon and evening. Some of these could be strong or severe into the nighttime hours.
A fairly soggy first half of the day can be expected for this Wednesday. Scattered showers and a few storms will be likely, but heading into the afternoon we will see a decrease in the activity. Highs today will be in the mid to upper 60s for the north and around 70° in the south.
Halloween continues to look wet with a fairly strong system working our way. Widespread showers and storms will be the call with some of these storms being strong to possibly severe. Damaging winds is the primary threat, but we cannot rule out the possibility of a spin-up tornado. The timing of this will be crucial for those trick or treaters. As of right now it looks like spotty showers will be a good bet for all before the strong storms push in. The best chance to see storms during those hours will be the farther west you go. Some eastern zones might get by without seeing the strong storms until the evening/nighttime hours.
Early rain for our Friday, but looking for sunshine by the afternoon with highs in the 50s. The weekend remains much cooler with highs in the upper 40s to lower 50s. The only chance of rain will be on Saturday at 30%.
