Home » Blog » Press Releases, Halloween Headlines


AccuWeather issued a special weather report offering a forecast to what we can expect for Halloween.

"Halloween is such a fun once-a-year occasion for both kids and their parents to enjoy, and we want people to be well prepared for a fun and safe night, which must include being properly dressed in addition to other safety precautions," said Alex Sosnowski, AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist.

Here's a look at the Halloween forecast around the nation:

For boys and ghouls in the northeast, the AccuWeather RealFeel temperatures in the I-95 corridor could be very balmy that evening, with readings near 70. So mummies and daddies should not expect bone chattering lows.  However, rainy conditions could prevail for the evening, making for a wet fright night.

Temperatures are expected to be 10-15 degrees below average and fall from the 40s to 30s on the coast, and from the 30s to 20s in the interior. Trick-or-treaters need not worry about ghastly winds though, as it should be relatively mild through the night.

No need for witchful thinking in the southeast, as the AccuWeather RealFeel Temperatures from North Carolina to Florida should hover comfortably in the 70s and 80s. Although areas from Alabama and western Florida could be in for a dark and stormy night as rainy and miserable conditions could be in store.  

Stay cautious in California, Nevada, and Arizona, where extreme fire danger is still a threat, with winds whipping up during the day. While those winds could diminish from day into night, it still may not be safe, or appropriate, for an outing due to fire activity or poor air quality.

The Plains
With warm days now dearly departed for most of the Northern Plains, a cool night lies ahead for goblins of all ages, with a strengthening storm that could unleash heavy snow. The AccuWeather RealFeel could be around the 20s, so plan accordingly for the elements.

Snow could plague parts of the Midwest, making spirits cold and wet. AccuWeather RealFeel Temperatures could range between the 30s and 40s.

Whether it’s sun, rain, or snow where you are have a fun and safe Halloween visiting the Haunted Houses and Trick-or Treating!
