In fact, showers and thunderstorms could return as early as tonight and tomorrow. By your Wednesday night, we'll include about a 40% chance of scattered rain and storms. That should last through early afternoon Thursday, as highs soar back into the sticky middle 80's. A brief lull in rainfall should slip in later Thursday into early Friday, only to give way to a 30% chance of pop-up showers and storms during the day on Friday, with plenty of humidity and highs back into the summery middle and upper 80's. Late Friday, a cold front will finally approach. Now, dependent on the speed of this front's passage, we'll either see a wetter or drier Halloween forecast.

Right now, it looks like our front is sluggish to get through. This should leave us with rain chances increasing by late Friday night and a 50% chance of showers and storms during the day on Saturday. By the time most kids head out trick-or-treating, there's still a 30% chance of leftover showers, but of course there's still several days to work on this forecast and many things can change.
