We start the first weekend of November on a cold note with temperatures siting at or below freezing. The clearing in the clouds through the day yesterday set up a cold start for Saturday. Some fog is present in a few locations, and because temperatures are below freezing, there could be some ice to deal with on windshields.

We do not sit under a freeze warning for this weekend as we have already reached 32 degrees this season. Still, steps should be taken to prepare your home and automobiles for the sub-freezing air in the coming months. Mostly we sit with quiet weather over the Commonwealth. Cloud coverage will thicken a little this afternoon thanks to a passing dry front. No rain is expected, but it will cool us down for tomorrow morning. It will also keep things breezy today. So, for those attending trick-or-treat 2.0 between 3:00 and 5:00 this afternoon, it will be a little chilly with a breeze at times. Plan accordingly. We will warm as we start the work week thanks to a southerly wind. The next chance for precipitation comes with a strong cold front around the middle to end of next week. We may even see a few more flakes out of the deal. That remains to be seen.
