You could not ask for better timing when it comes to sending thousands of kids outside in search of candy.
Nearly an inch and a half of rain has fallen in the last 24 hours, and there was always the chance that rain could put a damper on the festivities. So clearly the forecast has turned out to be a treat.
The small price to pay for this turnaround is that cooler air is filtering in and the overnight low temperatures are going to drop into the low 40s. Those are the kind of temperatures that can get your attention if you run out the door in the morning for a quick jog and suddenly realize that you were under dressed.
Regardless, Saturday looks great with partly sunny skies and high temperatures in the mid 50s.
Sunday also looks pretty good with high temperatures in the mid to upper 50s. However rain will be back Sunday afternoon.
Next week we go right back to the steady rain and stormy conditions, so take advantage. It is especially hard to get a break that coincides with the weekend. But I guess you already knew that.
Have a great weekend and don't forget daylight saving time ends this weekend. So be sure to roll back your clocks. Oh, and take advantage of that extra hour of sleep. I know I will.
