Expect rain, and lots of it, for Halloween and beyond: Environment Canada

Strong westerly wind gusts of 90 km/h are possible Halloween night and into Friday morning.

The weather forecast for Thursday from Met Eireann for Friday is for it to be cloudy with further showers or longer spells of rain. In Denver, it will fall to the 20s by 7 p.m. - right when many trick-or-treaters head out for the evening.

Light to moderate southeast to south winds will become light variable later.

Lt. Anne Perriello of the the Pelham, New Hampshire, Police Department said police don't want tree limbs coming down where children are going to be trick-or-treating and they don't want visibility issues when the children will be walking through neighborhoods.

Captain John Murphy states that the Sheriff's Office will have extra patrol officers out working at irregular intervals during the trick-or-treat activities in order to promote safer driving.

"We can deal with rain, we can deal with snow".

Lowell from 6 to 8 p.m. Another quarter to half-inch of rain is expected after nightfall. The high for Saturday will be around 50 degrees.

"I think it should be no matter what on Halloween", said Koral Brooks. As per TVA Nouvelles, around 30 municipalities in Quebec have postponed Halloween.

Still, several municipalities are sticking with their original dates and times. He added that officials chose to not change the date, "because Halloween is on October 31".

A soaking rain looks to develop on Halloween so be prepared for wet trick-or-treating conditions. Coastal flooding is possible from noon to 2 p.m.

There is a silver lining to this year's Halloween forecast - temperatures will be mild.

"Temperatures mainly cooler than average normal, exacerbated by the wind and rain at times".

In any case, make sure to keep this in mind before you and your family or friends go out on Halloween!
