October 31, 2012 — What's in store weather-wise when your little ghouls and goblins hit the streets? Meteorologist Gerald Cheng breaks down the forecast.

Hallowe'en Forecast
Hallowe'en Forecast

It's almost time for Trick-or-Treaters to start hitting the streets!

Will the weather cooperate for the spookiest event of the year? 

"We've got a mix of weather happening across the country on this Hallowe'en," say meteorologist Gerald Cheng. "In some cases, the forecast is less-than-ideal for trick or treating, but it shouldn't be enough to keep people indoors. You'll just want some extra layers and maybe an umbrella." 

With the remnants of Hurricane Sandy still affecting parts of Ontario, Quebec and the Maritimes, showers are forecast through this evening. 

"It's going to be quite unsettled in the Maritimes, as well as sections of southern Ontario," Cheng says. "You might get a break from the wet weather though if you are in Ottawa or Montreal." 

Conditions are also looking dry, but cloudy, in much of Newfoundland. 

Meanwhile, in the west, light snow could be falling in parts of Alberta this evening, including around Calgary and Edmonton.

"We could also see ice pellets in places, too," Cheng says. "There is a risk of freezing rain, but that's moreso into the overnight hours."

The weather looks to remain dry in cities like Winnipeg and Regina. Temperatures will be seasonal in Manitoba, but more on the cool side across Saskatchewan and Alberta. 
In British Columbia, rainfall is also expected through Trick-or-Treating hours. 

"A system from the Pacific is still bringing wet weather to Vancouver," Cheng says. "There's even a risk of freezing rain in some small regions of the central Interior."
