Storm Tracker Forecast: Warm & dry through Halloween weekend

We'll be staying very warm and dry through your Halloween weekend. Temperatures will finally start to cool down for the middle of next week and the potential for showers will return for the end of next week.

Posted: Oct 30, 2020 6:23 AM

The trend of dry weather, chilly overnight low temperatures, and above average daytime high temperatures will continue over the next several days. High pressure in the Eastern Pacific is the dominant feature in our forecast today, but low pressure tracking through to our north is keeping our high temperatures somewhat in check this afternoon. Skies will be sunny to mostly sunny today. Temperatures are starting out in the 30's to 40's in the valley, in the 40's to 50's in the foothills, and in the 20's to 30's in the mountains this morning. Winds will stay on the lighter side, and will end up out of variable directions this afternoon. Humidity will continue to trend low, and is expected to bottom out in the 10 to 20 percent range in most of our region. High temperatures are projected to end up in the upper 70's to low 80's in the valley, upper 60's to mid 70's in the foothills, and high 60's to around 80 degrees in the mountains this afternoon. The low humidity and record dry fuels will be a concern for fire danger today, but we'll stay in the moderate range this afternoon.

Winds will briefly pick up out of the north tonight, but will only top out at around 15mph. Winds will diminish through your Saturday. Overnight low temperatures will be slightly warmer on Saturday morning, and temperatures will end up around 3 to 4 degrees warmer for your Saturday afternoon in most areas. We'll be staying dry on Halloween. Sunday will be almost identical to Saturday, but high temperatures may end up a degree or two warmer in the afternoon. You'll want to remember to set your clocks back one hour at 2am Sunday morning as Daylight Savings Time ends.

We'll be staying warm and mostly dry through at least the middle of next week, but models are hinting at a slight chance for showers in our northern zones on Tuesday into Wednesday. Longer range models are showing a more substantial area of low pressure dropping down from the Gulf of Alaska Thursday into Friday of next week. This will result in a decent drop in temperatures, and will also come with a chance for wet weather returning to our region on Friday and Saturday. This is still a ways off, so a lot can change over the next week, but the good news is that at the very least cooler weather does look likely. We'll continue to track this system closely as it could bring the first significant rain of the season to northern California.
