Incorporating a rain jacket into your Halloween costume this year might be a good idea given the weather forecast for the week in Bend.
“It is just going to be kind of a wet week," said Rob Brooks, forecaster for the National Weather Service in Pendleton.
Some warm layers under that costume would be wise, too.
While today through Wednesday should have high temperatures around 60 degrees, the weather is expected to turn chilly Halloween night. Brooks said Wednesday night temperatures could drop into the 30s.
Thursday and Friday should have highs around 50 and lows in the 30s, according to the National Weather Service.
Like the rainstorms over the weekend, which Brooks said dropped 0.01 of an inch of rain on Bend, the rainfall this week is unlikely to add up to a substantial amount.
In all, less than half an inch of rain is expected to fall this week in town, said Josh Smith, a meteorologist with the weather service in Pendleton. The wettest day this week will likely be Thursday, he said, with a fifth of an inch expected.
Although rain clouds should regularly roll over town this week, Brooks said there should be some windows of sunshine.
“There (are) going to be slight breaks," he said.
