Some of October's final days are set to be soaked with up to 3 inches of rain in the D.C. area — but the skies are forecast to clear up just in time for Halloween.

Take the chance to clean out the gutters or exercise outdoors on Tuesday and Wednesday. Skies will be mostly cloudy and some sprinkles of rain are possible. Highs are set to be in the upper 50s to low 60s.

Heavy rain leftover from Hurricane Zeta is expected to reach the D.C. area by daybreak Thursday. Overall, there's a 100% chance of rain on Thursday.

A solid 1 to 2 inches of rain is likely and local amounts could exceed 3 inches in spots, Storm Team4 Meteorologist Chuck Bell says.

Friday will remain rainy and cold, with highs barely scraping past the 50° mark for some. Break out a scarf and cold-weather jacket to stay warm amid blustery winds.

Rainfall is set to wane throughout Friday, turning to frequent showers then coming to an end around sunset.

There's good news for Halloween on Saturday, which is set to be sunny but chilly with highs near 50°. Plan to bundle up your little ghosts and goblins — even if they say "boo."
