Well, Ryan’s hiatus begins today, so for the next week+, you get me! All Anthony, all the time! Well, until Ryan comes back anyways. Let’s hope I do alright in my relief stint for our starting weather quarterback. So, without further adieu, let’s get on to the forecast! Today takes us down to western Tennessee, someplace I imagine is warmer than the Upper Midwest these days. Will their trick-or-treating be under pleasant conditions? Let’s find out if that’s the case!
At 153pm CDT, the temperature at Jackson, TN was 65 degrees under fair skies. A cold front is working its way through the Mid- and Lower-MS River Valley regions this evening, and will kick up a few showers over the area as it traverses the area tonight into tomorrow morning. These showers shouldn’t be too heavy, and any threat of lightning from these should remain to the north and west, so I wouldn’t worry too much about this system. There might be a stray shower lingering over the area tomorrow morning, but as the system continues to push off to the east throughout the day, skies will clear up. Strong high pressure will take hold from the Great Lakes to the Southern Plains so quiet conditions are expected into the weekend. Halloween might be a tad brisk around trick-or-treating time, as some gusty northwest winds will usher in some cooler air, so might wanna add a layer under your kids’ costume, just in case. Enjoy the weekend you ghoulish readers!
