FIRST ALERT SUMMARY
The dreary and wet weather continues tonight with scattered light showers/mist hanging over the Midlands with temperatures holding in the upper 50s.
For your Halloween a slow moving cold front finally swings across the region sparking off scattered showers and some thunderstorms during the afternoon and evening. These showers/storms will be hit or miss so not everyone will have the rain as the kids head out for trick-or-treating but take the umbrella and rain jackets just in case one of these showers moves over your community while you are out celebrating Halloween.
The front will push out towards the coast early Tuesday morning but we could have some clouds hanging around for the morning before sunshine returns for the afternoon warming temperatures into the upper 70s as High pressure builds back over the region.
We will have some additional clouds on Wednesday with the chance for one or two stray showers as an upper level wave moves up the Appalachian Mountains but it will still be warm with highs in the middle 70s.
Thursday and Friday look beautiful as high pressure continues to dominate our weather producing mostly sunny skies and warm temperatures in the middle 70s.
We will likely have partly cloudy skies Saturday and Sunday with highs in the upper 70s. However, with a ENE breeze developing off the Atlantic again these is a slight chance for some light showers/drizzle during the evening hours both nights as the temperatures cool off like we expected this past weekend.
Also, next Saturday night is the end of Daylight Saving Time and we turn back our clocks one hour. This time change will move up our sunset time to 5:26 PM Sunday night.
In the tropics the wave that was of interest near Bermuda has weakened and meagered with a frontal system and no longer has the threat of any tropical development that the Hurricane Center is no longer monitoring this cluster of storms.
As for the area of storms in the Caribbean the National Hurricane Center is now referring to it as Potential Tropical Cyclone Fifteen. If this area becomes a tropical system it will get the name Lisa but the good news is it should continue to track to the west heading for Central America and stay away from the United States.
