TONIGHT: Skies are partly cloudy. The low dips to a seasonably cool 43 in Philadelphia with some suburbs in the mid to upper 30s.

FRIDAY (HALLOWEEN): Another front approaches, but remains far enough to the west that we should see some morning sun with increasing clouds during the afternoon and evening. The high is a cool 58. We'll fall into the low 50s during the evening. You'll probably need some long johns under the kids' costumes to keep your favorite goblin warm and happy.

SATURDAY: November 1st? It will feel more like December 1st! A powerful piece of energy in the northern jet stream will pass to our south bringing a lot of clouds and a few rain showers. It will also be windy with gusts up to 30 mph. The high is technically 54, but that's very early in the morning. We'll see temperatures fall into the low 50s and upper 40s during the afternoon. This will not be a comfortable day.

SATURDAY NIGHT TIME CHANGE: Remember to set your clocks back one hour when you go to bed. Our seasonal time change ("fall back") officially occurs at 2 a.m. as Daylight Saving Time ends.

SUNDAY: We bring back the sunshine, but the strong, chilly wind continues to gust up to 40 mph at times, keeping us shivering. The high is 51, but morning wind chills will be in the 30s and during the afternoon, it will generally feel like the 40s.

MONDAY: High pressure slides to the east, giving us a milder southerly flow. We see no worse than partly sunny skies with a slightly milder high of 57.

TUESDAY (ELECTION DAY): Clouds share the skies with occasional sunshine. It's dry at the polls. The high improves to 65.

WEDNESDAY: More clouds are likely with a few showers around. The high is 66.

THURSDAY: Long-range projections suggest a mostly cloudy day with a chance of showers and a high around 62.
