StormTeam Outlook: Friday, October 31
Benjamin Dery, Meteorologist
A rather chilly end to the month as a piece of cold Canadian air moves overhead. Some parts of the south shore are waking up to enough lake effect snow to shovel! Most of us are well below the freezing mark and have at least a trace of snow on the ground.
The good news is sunshine will be returning today. Temperatures remain in the 30s all day (coolest day since late April!), but winds will be diminishing. That will allow the lake effect snow to end by noon, and it should at least feel a little nicer outside.
For the trick-or-treaters, it's going to be a cool evening as temperatures quickly fall as the sun sets. We'll probably be back below freezing around sundown with a calming wind. Maybe an extra layer underneath the costume.
For late night festivities, temperatures are going to cool into the teens and low 20s! Expect to find a few frozen bodies of water Saturday morning. We'll be back in the mid 40s both weekend days with dry weather until Monday.
Be safe tonight!
