Depending on your location, your Halloween forecast could be bone-chilling cold or wickedly-warm! As a potent upper-level low swirls through the Mid-West and into the East Coast, it will bring a ghoulishly cold weather pattern across the region. As the system swings through, it will bring a cold shot of air, scattered showers and the risk for isolated severe weather.

Let’s break down the timing of your Halloween forecast across the nation.

Showers and thunderstorms will spread through the south, the Mid-Atlantic and into the northeast during the day. Snow will fall on the back side of the system from Chicago and points northward.

As the front moves east, it will tap into an area of instability, allowing for stronger storms to develop. Generally from New York south into Georgia.

Along this line of storms, the possibility of severe weather may develop later in the afternoon and evening.

Showers and thunderstorms will continue into the night time hours.

The Storm Prediction Center, or SPC, has issued an enhanced risk of severe weather in the areas shaded in orange. The largest threats will likely be damaging hail, gusty winds and flooding.

Bundle up when taking the kiddos out for their trick or treat festivities as much colder air is in the forecast!
