THE WICKED WINDS OF CHANGE....
Strong winds defined Halloween and boosted temperatures into the 60s Saturday afternoon.
Winds will remain strong Sunday, but switch directions out of the north. This is as a cold front moves through and a big high pressure system moves in.
Temperatures will be around 20 to 25 degrees colder Sunday. Plus winds of 20 to 40 mph will make it feel even colder.
Do not fear, though! The warmth comes back. Fall is not yet over and next week will be it's comeback. A big ridge of high pressure in the upper levels of the atmosphere moves in and kicks the cold out really starting Tuesday.
This will do two things -- send temperatures up above normal and send the jet stream away and keep the weather quiet.
To the first point, temperatures will be running about 10 to 15 degrees above normal by Wednesday:
Temperatures will be running above normal, in the 60s, through the week.
To the second point, there will be little to no precipitation through the week, as well. There will be few systems due to the storm track being well to our north.

Enjoy the warmth while it lasts!
