Your Halloween weather forecast

Friday and Saturday

The weather for Halloween weekend is looking nice and quiet for any Friday night and Saturday plans. Skies will be partly cloudy with temperatures in the 50s and 60s. 

Sunday and Monday

However, a pattern change is expected by Sunday which will lead to rain chances returning Sunday and Monday. 

Rain chances are expected to increase by the end of Sunday and into Sunday night. 

It’s looking increasingly likely that scattered rain chances will linger through Monday night, as a low-pressure system continues to track over the Carolinas through Tuesday morning.  

This chance for rain could negatively impact trick-or-treat activities across central NC on Halloween. 

The bottom line? You may want to incorporate a raincoat, rain boots or umbrella into your costume.  

The forecast is still subject to change so be sure to consistently check in with the FOX8 Weather team for the latest forecast!
