Saturday will feature breezy conditions and mostly sunny skies as we get a taste of autumn this weekend.  Saturday’s highs will be in the low 80s.

Halloween will be scary good, with morning lows in the mid-60s and lots of sun during the day.  The evening will be dry and pleasant — except for the ghosts and goblins.  Sunday’s highs will be in the low 80s.

Monday’s forecast calls for a nice early November day, with morning lows in the mid-60s, plenty of sun, and a few clouds at times.  Highs on Monday will be in the low 80s.

The nontropical low we’ve been watching is pulling away from the coast of the Northeast.  As it moves southeastward through the open Atlantic, it has a low chance of developing subtropical or tropical characteristics during the next five days..
