Treats, No Tricks

While it’ll be a cooler day today with a chilling breeze at times, it’ll be dry with returning sunshine. In addition, the dry times hold on through the overnight hours, allowing for those little ghosts and goblins to run around tonight without worrying about getting their costumes wet. Maybe an extra layer on under the costumes, but it’s overall a solid forecast. Do be advised that temps slide fairly quickly after sunset as temps fade back into the lower 40s for early evening trick-or-treating. Coolish, but not so scary of a forecast. Temps continue to tumble overnight, eventually falling into the mid to upper 20s in the burbs to upper 30s in Boston by daybreak on Tuesday.

The dry pattern lingers for a few days as milder air returns by mid-week. Temps by Wednesday and Thursday surge into the 60s, and even nudging 70 as a possibility before a cold front closes in on us Thursday late-day/Thursday night. That front will bring us the next chance for showers and perhaps even some thunder Thursday afternoon or Thursday night.  On the flip side of that front, we cool it back off for Friday, into the Weekend. Sugar high on the kids? The pattern favors outdoor recess all week as Thursday’s rain is in after school ends.

While we didn’t pick up a lot of rain last night in Boston, we do finish the month of October with near 5.5″ of rain. That’s a good 1.5″ above average and is more than what we had from June-September combined!  It’s a step in the right direction, but still a ways to go before we put a huge dent in the ongoing drought that’s been ongoing over the last couple years.
