Pardon the pun, but the forecast for Halloween is looking frightful!  Eyewitness News meteorologist Ron Rhodes says a "pretty strong cold front" is on the way and "severe weather is not out of the question."

According to current forecasts, the day before Halloween is going to be unseasonably warm.  We could see highs near 70.  But, that's not going to last.  While it's still early, forecast models are predicting that a cold front will move through the tristate on Halloween.  It will bring with it colder temperatures and potentially lots of rain.  According to Ron, there's a "solid chance of rain."  And, thunderstorms could be in the mix too with some of them possibly severe.

We'll keep you posted as the Halloween forecast updates.  In the meantime, you may want to dress the kids up and hit trick-or-treat and trunk-or-treat events scheduled between now and then.
