Halloween forecast: Not all that scary

Halloween

It should be a nice evening for little ghosts and goblins to go trick or treating, as there's only a small chance of rain and temperatures should be warm.

South Florida's Halloween forecast calls for partly sunny skies with highs in the mid 80s and a 30 percent chance of rain during the day.

It also should be breezy with gusts of more than 20 mph; because of the winds, beware of rip currents at the beaches.

In the early evening, temperatures should remain in the upper 70s and low 80s, and the winds should calm down. Overnight lows are expected to dip into the low 70s.

While Friday and Saturday afternoons are expected to be hot, a cold front should cool things down a bit by Sunday.

Central Florida's Thursday forecast: Mostly sunny with highs in the upper 80s, lows in the upper 60s and a 20 percent chance of rain.

Wet Halloween past: From weather expert Jim Lushine:

For Halloween two years ago, the best costume might have been a rubber ducky. Tons of rain fell over eastern portions of metro Broward County, including Oakland Park, Wilton Manors, Pompano Beach and Fort Lauderdale.

Portions of the area between Interstate 595 and Pompano Beach received about 8 to12 inches of rain, and most of it fell within a nine-hour period.

Up to 15 inches fell within an area between Broward and Commercial boulevards, east of Interstate 95. A total of 402 homes suffered water damage; roads were closed and water on the ground stood several feet deep.

Portions of eastern Miami-Dade County were also inundated.
