We are continuing to track Hurricane Zeta as it continues to strengthen in the Gulf of Mexico.  Wednesday will start off with scattered rain showers before rainfall becomes more widespread by the afternoon, rainfall could be heavy at times with isolated thunderstorms.  Soaking rain showers will continue overnight into Thursday with 2 to 4 inches of rainfall possible in some locations, isolated flooding may be possible.  Along with rainfall, wind gust will increase for Thursday into Friday with gusts between 25 to 35 miles per hour. 

Rainfall associated with Zeta will depart by Friday and a cold front will usher in some much cooler and drier air, Friday’s highs will only be in the lower 60s.  Good news for Halloween weekend though, we look drier with temps in the 60s and sunshine for Halloween Saturday.  Trick or Treating temperatures will be in the 50s for Saturday night.  Daylight Saving Time will end Sunday morning with clocks going back one hour.  Be sure to check  and replace batteries in smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors and NOAA weather radios.
