Today, Halloween, will be sunny and chilly with highs only topping out in the upper 40s to low 50s. Winds will be noticeable but not overpowering. The dry pattern will allow some of the rivers and streams that have been running fast and full from Zeta to lower and slow down. Still some muddy pockets out there so make sure to wear your boots if you head outside and wipe off your dog’s paws when they come back in from the yard or a walk.
Halloween evening will be on the chilly side.
This is an interesting time as there will the be 2nd Full Moon of the month tonight and it is nicknamed the Blue Moon. It also Halloween which last occurred over all US time zones was 1944.
It is also the time for us to go back to Standard Time.
Sunday will be a little warmer but there is a chance for us to see a bit more rain. A disturbance is going to enter from the south with some light to moderate rain pushing over the Piedmont. At the same time upslope rain and maybe even a few flakes will be falling over the west facing slopes. Look for the snow, if we see any at all, to melt quickly as the ground is still warm, but there may be some slick spots on a few bridges and overpasses.
Monday will be another cold day and a brisk day with winds coming in from the north and northwest. Highs on Monday will be in the upper 40s most locations, and possibly only in the upper 30s in a few of our higher elevated locations. The rest of the week looks to be dry and cool with temps warming up a few degrees each day. November will start out with a little rain Sunday but become dry and stay dry for at least the first week.
Our next tropical system is brewing in the Caribbean and will be called Eta if it becomes a Tropical Storm. This will be the 28th named storm of the 2020 Atlantic Basin Hurricane Season, breaking the record of 27 set in 2005.
