Halloween Blue Moon, windy and turning colder Sunday

Weather

Blue Moon and Time Change Late Tonight!

Tonight at 2 a.m. we “fall back” an hour, so don’t forget to turn your clocks back an hour before going to bed, and check/change the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Enjoy the Hunter’s Blue Moon–the second full moon of the month! The last full moon on Halloween visible virtually worldwide (except for eastern Australia and a few island nations, where it’s Nov. 1) occurred in 1944.

This morning’s freeze brought the lowest readings of the season so far in parts of central Ohio, with readings ranging from 26 to 30 degrees. Clouds moving in and a southwest breeze will keep the temperature much milder overnight, rising from the mid-40s now to the low 50s at dawn.

A cold front trailing low pressure over southern Canada will sweep through Ohio early Sunday with a thin band of showers. Gusty winds and a reinforcing blast of chilly air could bring a passing snow flurry in the north later. Temperatures will fall to near 40 degrees early Sunday afternoon, with strong northwest winds gusting over 30 mph, creating a near-freezing wind chill factor.

After a frosty start early Monday and an unseasonably chilly day, the weather will gradually moderate with highs returning to the low to mid-60s Wednesday through next weekend.

Sunny, quiet weather will prevail for Election Day, with dry conditions in virtually all of the nation, except the Pacific Northwest and northern New England.
