The Quad Cities Can Expect Frigid Temps for Halloween
If your child hasn't chosen a Halloween costume yet, you may want to buy them something with long sleeves and a hood.
KWQC's longterm forecast for Halloween is looking cold as of right now.
Taking a glance at some of the long-range data, A big dip in the Jetstream is expected to develop over the next week across the central and western half of the country. This pattern is expected to amplify or deepen even more in the last few days of October. If this projected pattern holds, then that would mean a couple surges of colder air over the next 5-10 days, but as the pattern deepens, even colder weather would be possible.
Translation: the QC can expect temps that are well below normal over the next couple of weeks. Average highs at Halloween are typically in the 50's with lows in the 30's. The Weather Channel's longterm forecast shows highs in the low 40's starting next Wednesday.
Yes, we're still 10 days out from Halloween, but the weather is not looking ideal for trick or treating this year.
