Detailed Forecast

This afternoon: Winds will increase through the afternoon, with speeds reaching between 10 and 20mph along the interstate... with 20 to 30 mph winds farther east over the plains.  Highs will be a bit cooler, ranging in the 50s and 60s. The winds will gradually die down through the late evening, but the wind will be an issue for early trick-or-treaters.

Halloween Night: Make sure the kiddos step outside with a jacket or extra layer! Lows will drop into the 30s for most. Thankfully, wind speeds will settle overnight.

Extended:  Breezy winds are anticipated over the weekend, with the next storm system arriving Sunday/Monday. This will bring our next significant cool down and our next chance for rain and snow.  It is very possible that we may get enough rain and snow on the Palmer Divide to cause a sloppy Monday morning drive... something we'll be monitoring very closely.  While the mountains and the Palmer Divide could get some light snow, most will just see rain.  This storm systems is done and over by Tuesday, with mild and quiet conditions returning.
