NBC10 First Alert Weather: Halloween Forecast

It's the last day of October and we’ve got some beautiful weather ahead for Monday, but tonight it gets chilly in a hurry for Halloween trick-or-treating.

The steady, drying breeze blowing Monday morning, will die down later in the day. Monday evening, the recipe for chilly weather this time of year – very dry air in place and clear skies – will be in place. The sun sets just before 6 o'clock, so expect temperatures to be dropping rapidly. Early in the evening the readings will be in the 40s for our entire Philadelphia area.

The later you stay out trick-or-treating the colder it's going to get. So your younger ghosts and goblins might need an extra layer as they go searching for treats. Halloween Safety TipsHalloween Safety Tips

Also, with a new moon and no clouds to reflect city lights, it will be very dark by 7 o'clock Monday evening. That’ll make it difficult for drivers to see children, especially those dressed in dark costumes. If ghosts and goblins are going to be out after dark, it’s a good idea to have them carry a flashlight to make them more visible to motorists.

Happy Halloween!
