What is becoming somewhat of a wet weather trend is forecast to resume in time to dampen trick-or-treating, with showers expected in the Baltimore region for Halloween on Thursday.
A cold front is draped across the eastern part of the country and forecast to stall there for the middle of the week, and rain is forecast ahead of it, making for a wet Halloween across half of the country. Rain is forecast to develop Wednesday, and heavy precipitation is expected up and down the Northeast Interstate 95 corridor Thursday, from Washington to New England.
In the Baltimore region, that is likely to mean rain showers starting Wednesday evening, continuing into Thursday. The heaviest rain is expected Thursday night.
“Locally, this will result in increasing rain chances Wednesday night, persisting through the day on Thursday, and likely maximizing Thursday night into Friday as a cold front sweeps across the area,” National Weather Service meteorologists wrote Sunday.
Temperatures are forecast to be mild, with highs in the upper 60s and lows in the mid-50s.
The precipitation would be the latest in a series of soaking rainfall events providing to relief to a fast-forming drought.
On Sunday, more than an inch of rain fell around the region by early afternoon.
