Halloween Weekend Forecast: Chance of showers and spooks

A few showers for Halloween, but drying out by trick-or-treat time.

BUFFALO, N.Y. — Halloween is shaping up to be on the milder side and featuring a little bit of rain. 

Showers will be around this morning and be hit or miss in nature. You can expect some showers during the tailgate, but by kickoff the showers and drizzle should taper off. A few showers cannot be ruled out on Sunday afternoon during the game; however, the rain is not going to be too impactful. 

For those that will be spending the day getting the kids ready for trick-or-treating, temperatures will be on the mild side and expect some drier conditions on Sunday evening. 

For those getting an early start around 5:30 p.m., temperatures will still be in the low 50s and by sunset, at 6:09 p.m., temperatures will dip into the upper 40s. While it won't be cold, it will be a bit breezy, so having an extra layer for the kids is not a bad idea, especially if their costume allows. 

By the time we get to Sunday night, temperatures will be cooling down into the low to mid 40s as a cold front quickly approaches in time for Monday morning. 

In the long range the weather pattern looks like it is going to be trending colder. The first push of chilly air of the season will arrive next week, and there is the chance for snowflakes to finally mix with raindrops this year. That looks to be Wednesday at this point though no major impacts are expected.
