Happy Halloween!

A “tricky” forecast this afternoon with rain starting and stopping at various times throughout the day and into this evening.

The 4Warn forecasters will be on the job every second of the day to make sure you know exactly when your little trick or treaters can come out to play.

Timing will be key here for school parades, parties and trick or treating. If you download the 4Warn Weather app (free to download, search WDIV in your app store!) you can see exactly where the rain is with our real-time radar. Then go to the apps FutureCast page to see exactly what time the rain will stop or start in your neighborhood.

This afternoon at 4 p.m., join me live on Local 4 where I will be tracking the rain down to street level with our exclusive Exact Track 4D radar.

At 4:30 p.m., the 4Warn Weather team will continue tracking showers live streaming on Local 4+, and I will be back during our 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. newscasts to let you know when and where to head for dry weather for trick or treating. (Local 4+ is free to download on most smart TV devices)

In the past 10 years, we’ve only had 2 Halloweens without precipitation. We knew this was coming and we’ve got you covered!

Monday night

Rain will end overnight and fog will arrive by morning.
