Weather Update for Thursday, October 31, 2019

Today we start off with a 100% chance of showers and thunderstorms with a high near 62.  As the day progresses, the rain and thunderstorm chance drops to 40%.  We still have the potential for severe weather today, most of our listening area is under a slight risk, and the eastern counties are listed under a marginal risk.  Please be mindful that wind gusts can get as high as 25 mph.

Please be prepared for the BIG temperature drop in the early evening (around 5 pm) to 47 degrees for some areas.  This means it will be a cold evening for the trick or treaters, so it might be a good idea to dress in layers.
