Halloween is a holiday when Mother Nature provides both tricks and treats for Grand Rapids.
The Halloween temperatures can range from a steamy 79° to a frigid 20°. Snowfall is rare, the last time I could find snow on the holiday was back in 1949.
This Halloween will be soggy and potentially stormy. The Storm Prediction Center has a slight risk for severe weather across part of Lower Michigan for Thursday and Thursday night. At times there will be some heavy rain and the some flooding is possible, especially where fallen leaves clog storm drains. Most of the severe weather would be concentrated south of I-94. Strong gusty wind would be the primary threat which could lead to some downed trees and power lines. Temperatures this evening will be very mild in the upper 50s and lower 60s.
The wind remains gusty behind the cold front Thursday night into Friday. The showers will likely linger into Saturday with a few locations potentially receiving upwards of 2 inches.
Pay close attention to the weather as you send the kids out the door this evening.
