High pressure remains in control on Sunday with skies becoming partly sunny and highs in the lower to middle 60s.

Showers will end early Tuesday and conditions will be windy and turning cooler with high temperatures reaching the upper 50s in the morning, before temperatures fall through the 50s in the afternoon.

Quiet weather will return on Wednesday with partly sunny skies and high temperatures in the lower 50s. Thursday will be variably cloudy and cool with a slight chance for a shower and high temperatures in the lower 50s again.

Halloween Friday will be variably cloudy, breezy and chilly with a chance of flurries in the morning. Highs will only be near 40.  High pressure returns over the weekend with mostly sunny skies and highs near 50 Saturday and into the mid to upper 50s Sunday.
