High pressure (Shaded “Arch” shape with blue arrows) took over for a very short time and now low pressure (“Shaded “U” shape with blue arrows) returns with rain.  A frontal system is headed our way. The warm front will move in between tonight and Friday followed by the cold front on Saturday. Sorry, but Halloween will be quite wet. Remember, Daylight Saving Time officially ends and Standard Time returns this weekend at 2:00 am Sunday November 1st (Or at Bedtime Saturday October 31st, Halloween). Turn your clocks BACK one hour. Remember the Fire Department recommends that you check the batteries in your smoke alarms, CO2 detectors, and Raydon detectors to make sure they still work. Chance them if necessary
