Growing up in the Northland, most kids know the experience of having the best costume ever be ruined by having to wear a coat and boots because of cold weather and/or snow creeping into our Halloween fun.

With daytime highs in the 30s and our first chance of snow coming for this weekend, what can we expect for Halloween in the Duluth - Superior area?

The good news in the Halloween forecast

There's no snow in the outlook for Halloween! At least, as of right now.

While our weather pattern has been bringing rain showers our way all week this week and that ongoing precip mixed with colder weather will bring a chance of snowflakes our way for Saturday and Sunday, it looks (as of right now) like those chances diminish in time for Halloween.

Another piece of good news - whatever snow we do end up getting over the weekend shouldn't amount to much, so snow boots shouldn't need to be part of your costume plans.

It's going to be chilly!

The early morning hours on Halloween will start around 22 degrees. Brr! By early afternoon, we'll reach our high temperature of the day in the Twin Ports area of around 31 degrees before we start to cool down again in time for Trick-or-Treating.

The latest forecast is calling for around 28 degrees at 7 pm, getting as cold as 25 degrees by 11 pm.

There's going to be a wind chill to contend with!

Yep, it's that time of year once again. While air temperatures will be in the low 30s and upper 20s for most Halloween festivities, it is expected to be breezy on Halloween as well making that "feels like" temperature dip much colder.

How cold?

During the "warmest" part of the day, the wind chills will be around 20 degrees. During the evening, they'll sink into the teens. By 11 pm, the "feels like" temperature is going to be only 12 degrees! BRRRR!

Will the cold stick around?

For those not ready for winter-like temperatures, I'm sorry. The cold air looks to stick around as we head into the early days of November. Wind chills for November 1 might not get any warmer than around 15 degrees. If you haven't done so yet, it's time do dig out the winter coat!
