Warm and Humid Halloween Expected for the Southeast


We do realize that we were saying a cold Halloween this year as many other pages were thinking the same thing. However we will end up being wrong about that. The Euro has been more accurate all along and has been indicating an above-normal Halloween this year as far as temperatures. The kids may be getting a bit sweaty as they run from door to door this year, especially under costumes. Highs during the day could be in the 80s, and may only go down into the 70s or upper 60s for trick-or-treating. Notice there will be a cold front to our west, but that will only bring slightly cooler and less humid conditions to our area rather than extreme cold.

Now we have something more in the trick department rather than a treat. The weather will be unsettled on Halloween, which, you guessed it, rain will be a threat to the trick-or-treaters. Showers and maybe even a rumble of thunder will potentially but a damper on any candy-seeking activities. Not everyone gets wet, but not everyone stays completely dry either. This may be remedied with either umbrellas or giving the kids a lift in a car. The rain may be heaviest or most likely in western regions, but not a guarantee.

Again we do cool off as we head into early November, but it will not be extreme cold, but rather close to normal or average for this time of year. For now, enjoy this week if you like warm, since it will be decent for outdoor activities before it gets cold for good!
