Weather

Stormy Saturday

Angela Zalucha
STAFF METEOROLOGIST

If you’re going to any Halloween parties Saturday night, plan to dress up as a scuba diver. The same low pressure system that brought heavy snow to Colorado and threatened the World Series in Saint Louis will make its way eastward through the Ohio valley today and northward along the Appalachians tomorrow. Associated with this system are heavy rains, but since it is moving quickly, rainfall amounts will not be excessive (one to two inches at most). By the time the low pressure center reaches us, the pressure could drop to as low as 29.15 inches (987 mb) in a matter of several hours, which implies very strong winds. Expect extremely blustery conditions Saturday and Sunday.

Meanwhile, high temperatures through Monday will generally be in the lower to middle 50s F, while lows will be in the lower to middle 40s F. Looking ahead to Halloween night, the weather will be fair with evening temperatures around 50 F.
