Rainy and windy Halloween gives way to winter-like weekend

Freeze Watch

Happy Halloween and also welcome to Friday!  Skies are cloudy this morning and some spotty showers will be on the 9 First Warning Doppler as you head out the door. Make sure to join the team on Good Morning Tri State for the latest rain returns and what the roads are shaping up like for your morning commute.

Spotty, light rain will be in the picture during the morning rush.  But more widespread and more consistent showers will arrive around noon today. This will continue through the evening  hours.  This not only causes problems for any school Halloween parades earlier in the day, it also means an unfavorable forecast for Trick-or-Treat.  Temperatures only climb to 47° today.  Please take note that it's also going to be a very windy day with winds from the northwest at 15 to 25, gusting to 30 mph. This will make it feel colder all day long. Realistically, feels like temperatures by 9 PM could feel as cold as 30-33°F!

TRICK OR TREAT HOURS:

Cloudy, cool and spotty showers for Trick or Treat hours

FRIDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL

It will be a raw and potentially wet evening for football with windy conditions. Temperatures will fall into the upper 30s before the end of the game. Bring an umbrella and blanket.

Weekend Forecast & Freeze Watch

Very cold, Canadian air will sweep into the area and could change the leftover precipitation into flurries or wet snow late Friday night and into Saturday morning. No accumulation, but areas south & east could get snow showers. Overnight lows will drop to near 30 degrees.

Due to the cold morning temperatures, our first Freeze Warning and Freeze Watch of the season has been issued for the Tri State.  A large portion of the Tri State is in the Freeze Warning tonight (purple counties), the rest are under a Freeze Watch (blue counties)  Freezing temperatures are likely to occur between 1 AM and 10 AM for both days.  This freeze will kill damage or kill any unprotected outdoor plants.

 

Freeze Warning & Freeze Watch Tonight

Saturday will see mostly cloudy skies with gradual clearing through the day with highs in the low to mid 40s.

FALL BACK! Don't forget to turn the clocks back an hour before bedtime. When you wake up on Sunday, you'll see plenty of sunshine with highs still in the mid to upper 40s.

SUNDAY BENGALS Forecast

It'll be cold for tailgate with temperatures climbing through the 30s before a kickoff temperature of 43 degrees. Temperatures will be in the 40s for the rest of the game. But at least we'll have sunshine to enjoy all day along!
