Rain expected tonight will give way to a dry weekend

No need for trick-or-treaters to bust out the umbrellas on Sunday.

The rain that’s expected to hit tonight will clear out by Saturday and leave a dry Halloween Sunday, according to Eric Kurth, meteorologist with the National Weather Service.

“Before, we had some concerns that the rain might linger, but it looks like it’ll be out of here,” he said.

Kurth said the low pressure system that’s been hanging out on the coast will move in tonight, bringing some showers.

There’ll possibly be some showers Saturday morning that will give way to a partly cloudy sky by the afternoon.

Temperatures will cool Saturday into the mid-60s, but a high of 70 is expected on Sunday.
