Trick-or-treating forecast around Minnesota

People will need to bundle up in the Northland.

Unless you live up north, the trick-or-treating forecast is about as nice as any kid could ask for. A little bit warmer would be nice, but this year's Halloween weather sure beats the mid-30s temps we dealt with last year. 

For the Twin Cities, it's going to be pretty much perfect with temps in the 40s during trick-or-treating hours. 

The same can be said for all of southern and west-central Minnesota, where temps should be in the 40s. But the further north you go, the colder and windier it gets. 

People in the Northland will have to bundle up to stay warm as highs today won't get out of the 30s in many areas, and the wind chill will be biting at or below freezing on a line from Bemidji to Duluth and points north. Brainerd and Hinckley, not much warmer for you. 

In northwest Minnesota, temps of 33-43 degrees are expected while kids are door-to-door in search of sugar. 

The forecast going forward features a chance of rain Thursday night, a rain/snow mix Saturday and Sunday followed by a potentially strong storm on election day (Tuesday). 

The National Weather Service is watching for that potential closely because if all the ingredients come together it will be the kind of storm that "would pose a threat for significant snowfall."
