• Monday evening could have wet weather to contend with on parts of the East and West coasts.
  • The central states will be dry and mild.

T​rick or treaters this Halloween might need to add an umbrella to their costume on parts of both coasts, but much of the central U.S. should escape the possibility of encountering any scary weather.

H​alloween will feature a pair of weather systems that could bring disruptive weather – one tracking through the East, and another one in the Northwest. Of course, the exact timing of these systems will determine what areas might have their plans dampened by rainfall, and those details remain somewhat uncertain given Monday is still several days away.

T​he good news is that there does not appear to be a big intrusion of cold air on the horizon for the majority of the U.S.

H​ere’s a look at how the forecast is shaping up right now in the East, Central and West regions. Be advised, the forecasts could change, so check back for updates that we’ll be doing regularly.


A​t least scattered showers are possible in the Northeast and mid-Atlantic on Monday evening. Heavy rainfall is not anticipated at this time, but it could be a nuisance for outdoor plans in spots.

A​ few scattered showers might also linger in the Southeast.

T​emperatures will range from the 50s and 60s in the Northeast to the 60s in much of the Southeast. All in all, not too shabby for October’s final evening.

F​lorida, per usual, will be the warmest with temperatures dropping into the 70s.



W​eather conditions in the central states are about as ideal as you can have on Halloween unless you are a fan of rain, snow and cold air.

P​recipitation of any type is forecast to be nonexistent at this time from the Midwest and Plains to the western Gulf Coast.

S​outherly winds will also keep temperatures feeling comfortable, ranging from the 50s in most of the Northern Plains and Midwest to the 60s and even a few 70s in the south-central states.



The West appears to be a wet and dry split.

A​ cold front tracking through the Northwest means rain showers might dampen some plans in Washington, Oregon and Idaho, as snow falls in the higher elevations. Temperatures will also be on the chilly side, generally running a few degrees below average.

M​ild temperatures and dry conditions are in the forecast for the Southwest.
