Halloween forecast: Warm, windy, rainy

Tricker-or-treaters can expect a warm Halloween night tomorrow, but some rain showers and strong winds may disrupt the evening.

Forecasters say the high temperature Thursday is expected to reach 70 degrees, and drop to just 62 overnight.

That's the good news for kids showing off their costumes and collecting candy around the neighborhood.

The bad news: The National Weather Service says there's a 60 percent chance of rain Thursday night. And AccuWeather says wind gusts of 40 to 50 mph are possible.

  • Threat of poison candy likely bunk, researcher says
  • Showers are most likely overnight into early Friday morning, forecasters say, so the Philadelphia region may stay dry until trick-or-treaters are back home.

    But AccuWeather senior meteorologist Alex Sosnowski has a warning for those outside on Halloween: "Fallen leaves will be scattered, trash cans could go flying and a few tree limbs may come down."
