It will be a cool start to Wednesday in the higher elevations. You will fall to the mid-30s. Frost is a small possibility.

The First Alert has been issued for Thursday into Friday. The rain is set to arrive in the afternoon to evening on Thursday.

The heaviest rain is expected to fall during that time. Highs on Thursday only reach the mid-60s so it will feel a bit cool too.

The showers will start to move out on Saturday.

We’ll be down to a 30% chance. The high will be in the low 60s.

Halloween will be a nice one!
