Halloween weekend seems dry for most of the United States, although some say âbrrrâ instead of âbooâ. Some trick-or-treaters may need a rain jacket to accompany their costumes, while others may need snow boots.
Some cities may choose to make treats on Saturdays, as children do not have to get up early on Sundays for school. However, this might not be the best idea for all locations, at least in terms of the weather.
Many more areas seem to have a chance of rain on Saturday than on Sunday.
Areas of the Tennessee Valley are considering high-end rain risks on Saturday, including Nashville, Knoxville and Chattanooga.
They are not alone. From West Virginia to Maine, intermittent showers are forecast for most of Saturday.
Cheats from Pittsburgh to Newark, New Jersey, to Boston may need to add a rain jacket or umbrella to their costumes.
The only area that could benefit from activities on Saturday would be the cities of Duluth, Minnesota south to El Paso, Texas, where temperatures will average 10 to 15 degrees above normal, along with dry conditions.
Sunday – Halloween – is certainly the nicest weather day across the country, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t places with rain or snow.
For much of Maine, persistent rain showers will persist, although thankfully this is not a washout. The rain showers there will gradually decrease throughout the day, so the trick-or-treat may well be dry.
Rain and snow showers are possible in parts of southern Wyoming, as well as northern Colorado and far northern Utah. In Boulder and Fort Collins, Colorado, as well as Cheyenne, Wyoming, trick-or-treaters may need to add boots to their costumes.
Temperatures will be 10 to 15 degrees cooler than normal from Great Falls, MT to Denver. On the flip side, much of Maine and South Texas will have high temperatures about 10 degrees above average.
Spooky Halloween predictions for some spooky cities
It’s not Halloween without spooky critters or spooky costumes. What about the Sunday forecast for communities and areas with some of America’s scariest names?
Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina – Forecasts in this Outer Banks town call for highs in the 70s with lots of sun, which keeps you safe from vampires.
Casper, Wyoming – A high temperature of just 40 on Sunday, along with a low chance of snow showers, means it might be hard to find the friendly ghost through the snowflakes.
Witch’s Hole Pond, Maine – This area of ââAcadia National Park has rain showers in the forecast with high temperatures around 60 degrees … good news since the Wicked Witch of the East doesn’t do so well with water.
Deadwood, South Dakota – The zombies don’t seem to be much affected by the weather, which I guess is good since the forecast in this sleepy town on Sunday calls for high temperatures just above zero, with scattered clouds.
Gravestone, Arizona – Lots of sun here with high temperatures in the mid 70’s. Perfect weather for carving spooky pumpkins.
Salem – The city of Oregon and that of Massachusetts have eerily similar forecasts: high temperatures around 60 degrees with mostly cloudy skies. You could say that witches are playing tricks on Mother Nature.
Sleepy Hollow, New York – Expect very dark and overcast skies with high temperatures around 60 degrees … perfect weather to take a nap.
Death Valley, California – Hot and sunny. While the highs will be near 90 degrees, it is still 8 degrees lower than the daily record of 98 set in 1966. Exactly what one would expect for Death Valley.
