While everyone may be hoping for a spooky and scary Halloween, it may be more soaked and soggy instead.
The good news, though, is it’s not looking quite as wet as it was earlier in the week. Rain is still expected Monday, but models are now hinting at a drier day than was expected. Showers will come, but they won’t last all day, so there’s still hope for parents who will be walking their costumed kids house to house and store to store in a few days.
The New York City area should see a half-inch to an inch of rain fall over the course of the day. So yes, an umbrella or rain jacket will probably be needed, but it won’t be so miserable you’ll dread having to go outside. And temps in the mid-60s mean it won’t be frigid, either.
Ahead of the holiday, the weather will actually be very pleasant and seasonable, with plenty of sunshine throughout the weekend. While Friday will certainly be cooler than some of the days earlier this week, with highs capping off around 57, it should still feel pretty mild out for this time of year.
Both weekend mornings will feel chilly, but both days also promise plenty of sun and highs in the low 60s. That makes for perfect weather for some early trick-or-treating for the kids — or some ideal leaf-peeping conditions.
Foliage in the NYC area is just about to be at its peak this weekend, so get out there and enjoy some of the gorgeous colors before the leaves are gone!
