A showery and foggy start, then dry costumes, candy

Despite the past few dreary, rainy days, trick-or-treaters might actually stay dry this year as they collect their Halloween bounty.

There is a chance of scattered showers this morning, but meteorologist Rocco Pelatti said the system would probably pass before it’s time for trick-or-treaters to take to the streets.

“By 5 p.m. the system should be exiting,” Pelatti said. “So when kids go out around 7, it should be dry.”

Showers and patchy fog will occur mostly before 11 a.m., but trick-or-treaters may want to bring some rain gear just in case.

Pelatti said it could get foggy, but probably not until 3 a.m. Monday, long after trick-or-treaters’ sugar highs wear off and they are fast asleep.

Today will see a high of 52 degrees and a low of 43.

“It looks warmer than last year,” Pelatti said. “We’re looking at mostly temperatures in the 40s.”

Things could get a little breezy though, with wind gusts up to 25 mph.

There’s a 50 percent chance of rain Monday, which should reach a high of 55 under cloudy skies. Rain is likely Monday night. Late Tuesday morning, however, the clouds should begin to break up, and the high could reach 53 degrees. The weather service said the drier, warmer trend should continue through the workweek.
