A Way-Too-Early Weather Forecast for Halloween in Fort Collins
So far things are looking pretty good.
The spooky season has finally arrived and before you know it, Halloween will be here. Usually I'm out with friends at a bar, but sometimes I spend Halloween with my cousin and her family. Since my husband and I don't have kids, it's fun to walk the streets and watch all of these kids lose their minds over candy, costumes, and the occasional haunted graveyard in someone's yard.
But nothing ruins Halloween faster than bad weather.
No one wants to sweat in their costumes because of the heat or have to cover up their costume with a big coat because it's cold. Heck, even the wind can cause major problems if you're wearing a hat or something else that can easily fly away. And don't even get me started on the rain.
This year, things are looking a little chilly in Fort Collins.
According to AccuWeather, we'll see the high around 60 on Sunday, October 31 with plenty of sunshine. As the sun goes down, temperatures will fall with the overnight low hovering around 35. The sunset is scheduled for 5:58 p.m. so hopefully trick-or-treating will be done before we get too cold.
Things will most likely remain dry with just a five percent chance of precipitation. Wind will be light at seven miles per hour with gusts at 15 miles per hour. All in all, it will be slightly warmer than last year when we saw the temperature around 33 at night.
Of course all of this is pretty premature. We still have some time before the big night, but I'm crossing my fingers we can get a little warmer before then.
