Our mild Halloween temperatures will linger into this evening. Leaf swirling winds will increase. Winds will be quite gusty at times.

The National Weather Service in Charleston is advising resident to secure any light weight object outside. A shower is possible anywhere this evening.

A cold front moves through tonight with more coverage to the showers and perhaps some rumbles of thunder. Some stronger wind gusts can be expected with the showers tonight. Especially across the mountains and the higher ridgetops in the lowlands.

A cooling trend will set in Friday through Sunday, including a reinforcing cold front Saturday. That front will bring some cool rain showers Saturday. That will change to snow showers in the higher elevations of the mountains Saturday night.

It will be cool and dry to end the weekend. High pressure will then build in for the start of the new work week, bringing in dry weather and a warming trend.
