We will get a quick hit of rain this morning as a front moves through starting at about 8AM.

As you can see, it will have moved off by 2PM.  We will stay nice and dry through the whole weekend.

Since our fellow Canadians out East got their first taste of snow this week, I thought I would look to see if we have anything like that in our forecast.

Here is the 16 day super long look for minimum temperatures.

Even though there is a bit of a downward trend visible, the  consensus (thick) line remains well above freezing all the way past Halloween into the first week of November.  Even the low confidence predictions don’t go below freezing.

So don’t expect any frost or snow anytime soon.  The blob and El Niño might be keeping us pretty warm for a while.
