Clear skies this morning and a pool of cooler air has let temperatures drop down into the 30s. Most locations are sitting above freezing, but a few have dipped down to 32 degrees. The positive is that we dried out quickly after yesterday morning's rain, so ice should be at a minimum. Still, keep an eye out for it. The FROST ADVISORY and FREEZE WARNING will both expire at 10:00 am. Rain is non-existent on the MaxTrack thanks to high pressure behind the front.

We will see an uptick in cloud coverage for Sunday thanks to a weak cold front. This front may squeeze out a few showers as it passes, but the chance is low. What will happen is the subsequent cool down. Temperatures will drop again for Monday. Morning lows will drop down into the upper 20s. A freeze watch is in effect for the viewing area but will be upgraded to a FREEZE WARNING as we get closer to the event. Take necessary steps to protect sensitive vegetation for Monday morning's freeze. It seems to be a big break from the rain next week. Sunny skies with warming temperatures can be expected into the following weekend.

As a bonus, tonight we get a lunar treat as a full blue moon rises overhead. When two full moons occur in the same month the second is called a "blue" moon. It's is important to note that the moon will not actually change colors, nor look blue when you see it. What makes this particular blue moon spooky is that it's occurring on Halloween night!

Trick-or-treat forecast:
Temperatures: 50-54 degrees
Wind: SE 5-10 mph
Rain chance 0%-5%
Sky: Mostly clear

Daylight Saving Time Ends Sunday (11/1)
Set clocks BACK one hour before bed on Saturday (Halloween). Also remember to check/replace batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.
