The forecast calls for warmer weather the rest of this week. The weather pattern that brought cold air to the Gulf Coast will finally loosen its grip on the area. The remnants of Sandy will lift into Canada. Winds that have been gusty out of the north the past few days will shift out of the west, bringing in that warmer air. Temperatures tonight will not be as cool, with 40s in most areas, although near the Hwy 84 corridor some upper 30s will be possible. Halloween looks great with lots of sunshine and highs in the 70s. Temperatures will fall into the 60s by evening, just in time for trick-or-treating.
Warmer weather is expected the rest of the week. Sunny skies and highs in the mid and upper 70s will prevail through Friday, with some low 80s for the weekend. Overnight temps will rise to the 50s. A weak cold front will move through the area early next week, bringing a slim chance for a shower Monday and Tuesday and slightly cooler temperatures in the 70s for highs.
