Halloween weather may be a little spooky as another in a series of Pacific storms moves toward the region late tonight, bringing wind gusts and a chance of showers on Saturday.

But the wet weather should subside by early evening when Halloween activities commence. Most of the showers should fall in the Spokane area before 11 a.m.

Milder weather with highs near 55 are expectred along with gusty winds continuing into the evening.

South wind could start to kick up later today in advance of an expected rain storm. Gusts may reach 24 mph in Spokane and 20 mph in Coeur d’Alene.

Rain should start some time after 11 p.m. tonight.

No more than a quarter inch of rain is expected in Spokane from the storm.

A few days of more stable conditions starting Sunday are expected. That should give residence a chance to finish up on autumn outdoor chores such as leave cleanup.

Sun may emerge on Sunday, and forecasters are calling for mostly sunny skies on Monday and partly sunny conditions on Tuesday with highs in the upper 40s both days.

Spokane International Airport has recorded 2.29 inches of precipitation this month, which is more than double the normal of less than an inch through Oct. 29.
