Mother Nature Delivers Tricks For Halloween Treaters

WEST MICHIGAN — While breezy and mild conditions are expected for trick-or-treaters on Thursday for Halloween, it will likely be wet too. Our forecast models are indicating the heaviest rain may be off to the south/east by trick-or-treat time, but lingering rain showers for the event across most of our area are still likely.

The attached snapshot from our FOX 17 FutureTrack┬ácomputer forecast model shows tallied total precipitation by midnight on Friday between one and two inches. The event gets underway Wednesday evening/night, with Thursday generally being a total washout. In fact, don’t be surprised to see/hear a few rumbles of lightning/thunder. Severe weather is unlikely, but not completely out of the question. A strong wind field from the south/west will help push high temperatures on Thursday well in to the 60s.

Perhaps the good news is Michigan remains on the front side of this strong storm system with warmer air in place. If we were behind the system with the colder air, we could be looking at several inches of snow. I wouldn’t be surprised to see gale warnings posted on Lake Michigan for Thursday as winds ramp up with the unsettled weather.
