October 22, 2011 — Trick or treaters can expect seasonal temperatures this Halloween.

There's still plenty of time to get a Halloween costume. That also means there's time for the forecast to trick or treat us by October 31st.

With a little over a week to go, temperatures are expected to be right on the mark across the country for this time of year.

“It looks like it is going to be quite wet out east, with scattered showers on the West Coast,” says Brian Dillon, a Weather Network meteorologist, “and, light snow for the northern territories.”

“This could change,” adds Dillon, “as a storm system will be moving towards eastern Canada”.

Ontario and Quebec are set to cool down throughout the next few days. “It will get colder each day of next week,” says Dillon.

A daytime high of 11°c is expected for the Toronto area on Halloween Monday. The temperature will drop a few degrees by the time children get into their costumes and head outside, however.

Back in 2007, southern Ontario saw a high of 16°c as kids hit the streets collecting candy. The temperature was six degrees above the seasonal daytime high.

Halloween 2008 was a near repeat of the previous year, when temperatures hovered around the mid-teens.
