STATEWIDE–After a rainy Thursday and Friday, skies will clear out across Indiana for Halloween weekend.
“Expect widespread showers at times really through Friday and then once we get into Friday night and Saturday, the low-pressure system that’s producing these showers will move off to the east, and rain chances will start to diminish,” said Joe Nield, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Indianapolis.
He believes there will be “prolonged areas of high water” because of the rain.
“While that is unlikely to worsen the minor flooding that’s ongoing across several of the rivers in the area, that will slow the fall of that high water,” said Nield.
Nield says it is best if you wear a winter coat and bundle up if you plan on trick-or-treating for Halloween.
“For Saturday night and into the early part of the workweek and Halloween, we expect it to be dry and pleasant, but a bit cool,” said Nield.
Highs will either be in the upper 50s or low 60s for much of Indiana Halloween night, but lows will be in the 40s.
“Another cold front moves through after that. During the middle of the next week, we’ll be struggling to get out of the 40s and lows will be in the 30s for most of Indiana,” said Nield.
