Tracking a Warm End to October

Posted at 4:07 PM, Oct 28, 2018

October got off to a warm start, and that’s how it will end. (Just not quite as warm.) Temperatures take a step back tomorrow before trending towards 70° for the final two days of the month.

After a dreary weekend, we are tracking the return of sunshine for the start of the work week. High pressure will build in and the wind will relax as skies brighten up. Trick-or-treaters won’t need any extra layers to keep warm, but they will need some rain gear. A cold front will approach the Ohio River by sunrise on Halloween. The wind will kick back up and clouds will increase during the first half of the day. We are tracking widespread rain and storms to arrive late Wednesday. Heavy rain and gusty winds will be possible through Thursday. This front will take a day or so to clear. Cloudy skies and isolate shower chances will linger into Friday. Temperatures will tumble over the early days of November. After a high of 70° on Halloween, Saturday’s high may struggle to reach 50°.
