The Halloween forecast has more “treats” than “tricks”

 After much cooler temperatures for this “Throw Back Thursday,” it gets even cooler for Halloween.  Though, it’s not all bad news for the Trick-or-Treat forecast!  It looks we’ll have more “treats” than “tricks,” with a dry night in store.  The real “trick” for tomorrow will be putting layers on underneath the costume, so that you don’t have to wear a coat on top!  Highs will top out in the low 50’s, with some locations struggling to make it to the 50° mark.  This means that once the sun sets at 5:39 PM, it will cool off quickly; into the mid to upper 40’s for your night out on the town.

A weekend storm system will bring chilly, gusty winds in for Saturday and Sunday.  The strongest winds are expected late Saturday through midday Sunday.  We’re talking sustained NE winds from 20-30 mph, and gusts could even reach 60 mph.  Showers will also plague our weekend, but will hold off until Saturday.  Current forecast model runs are predicting more rain than previous models; between /2″ to just over an inch (coastal areas).  The coldest air though will move in after the wet weather has ended, which means I don’t expect to see any snow in MA with this storm.

As quickly as the storm blows in, it takes off – and while we can expect more sunshine on Sunday, prepare for a VERY cold day with the chilly wind sticking around.  Bundle up for the Pats game!  Highs will be stuck in the low 40’s, and wind chills could get down to the freezing mark.
