Forecast: We have a lot of rain in the forecast for this week. Most models are showing between 1-2 inches of rain between now and next weekend. Temperatures are expected to be a bit above normal as well, highs in the mid and upper 50's all week with lows near 50.

Monday-Tuesday we are expecting mostly cloudy skies and showers that will be a hit and miss nature, much like we had on Sunday. Tuesday evening the next big rainmaker moves in with steady rain increasing overnight.

Halloween we are expecting steady rain day in and day out, so it's going to be very wet for trick or treaters. The rain is expected to continue through Friday, heavy at times. We might have a break into showers sometime Thursday. The weekend looks to be cloudy with showers both Saturday and Sunday.

Last week we had some significant rainfall to make up for our dry period. On Saturday alone we received right about 1 inch of rain total for the day. We could very easily pick up enough rain this week to make the average rainfall for the month.

Our temperatures increased a bit above normal when the rain storms came in. I think it'll be enough to push us above normal in average temperature for October.

With all these heavy rains and a lot of foliage on the ground we could see some urban flooding. Be sure to check those local storm drains and help keep them clear of debris.
