10/31 – Brantly’s “Chilly Halloween” Thursday Afternoon Forecast
We reached today’s high temperature early in the morning. A cold front moving across the region is causing temperatures to gradually decrease throughout the day. By the middle of the afternoon, rain should have completely exited the area as storms associated with the cold front move to the east.
Temperatures will be in the lower 50s in time for trick-or-treating, dropping to the upper 40s just after sunset. Then, waking up Friday morning, we will be in the upper 30s along the coast and mid 30s for inland locations. It will feel cold, especially when you factor in the wind chill. Winds will be out of the northwest or north at 10 to 20 miles per hour.
In the tropics, Subtropical Storm Rebekah is in the North Atlantic. It is not a threat to the United States and will likely weaken within the next couple of days as it moves toward colder waters and gets into unfavorable atmospheric conditions.
On the water, there is a Small Craft Advisory in effect today. Seas will be at 2 to 5 feet in the sound and protected waters, going up to 6 to 9 feet in the Gulf of Mexico. Winds will be near gale force. If you are in a smaller watercraft, it is advised you seek safe harbor until conditions improve tomorrow.
We’ll stay chilly through the weekend with overnight lows in the upper 30s to lower 40s. Daytime highs will be in the lower 60s.
Don’t forget — we fall back one hour Saturday night into Sunday morning as Daylight Saving Time comes to an end.
