We’ve now moved into second place on the wettest Octobers on record list, and we have an outside chance at the top as another fairly wet storm gets ready to move through the region at the end of the weekend. For Saturday, we have a little break in the action as one warm storm moves off to the east, and a colder storm sets up offshore. Saturday valley temperatures will rise to near seasonable levels in the mid-60s with plenty of cloud cover, but apart from a few mountain showers, it’s unlikely we will see any other significant precipitation. On Sunday a colder winter-type storm front pushes into the region, bringing another round of valley rain, with snow levels that will come down from 7,500’ early Sunday to near 6,000’ by the evening. A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for the mountains above 6,500’ for Sunday, with enough snow possible that it could impact travel over the passes.
The good news for trick-or-treaters is it looks like things will settle down and dry out before they hit the streets on Monday night.
