    Halloween Treats and Tricks

    Wednesday 7 a.m.

    As a storm develops in the middle of the country (and threatens to cause severe thunderstorms and even tornadoes from eastern Nebraska through the middle of Texas), a southwesterly flow of unseasonably warm air will extend from the Gulf States to New England.

    As the warm air approaches and climbs over the cool air ahead of it, clouds and pockets of precipitation have broken out from the Ohio Valley to parts of New England today. I use the term precipitation rather than rain because light snow has been seen along the northern edge of the moist area. This video suggests how weather features will progress during the next several days.

    One issue along in the I95 corridor will be whether the rain holds off until after trick-or-treat time tomorrow evening. As of this morning (Wednesday), it appears that the rain will hold off... but it looks like a close call. From Skull Run, W.Va., up to Lake Eerie and over to Gouldsboro, Pa., a thick of clouds will cause rain.

    I will be out of the office tomorrow, but expect to be back Friday. In the meantime, I have an announcement that is pretty standard at this time of year: Turn your clocks back one hour by 2 a.m. Sunday. With 25 hours, Sunday is truly the longest day of the year,
