10/31 – Brantly’s “Rainy Day, Chilly Night” Thursday Morning Forecast
Patchy dense fog will be in the area this morning. Make sure you are using caution on your morning commute. Showers and thunderstorms are likely once again today, but only for the first half of the day. Rain chances will run at about 90 percent through the early afternoon hours. Some of the storms could produce gusty winds and heavy rainfall.
High temperatures today will be in the lower 70s. However, we actually reached the high temperature early this morning. A cold front moving across the region will cause temperatures to gradually decrease throughout the day. By around 1:00 p.m. or 2:00 p.m. rain should begin to exit 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.
