Trick-or-treat forecast: Eerie fog moves out, drier air in

A mood-setting mist will dissipate as drier air moves in across much of Minnesota Thursday, setting up a mostly mild Halloween night, forecasters say.

There's no need to put winter coats over the kids' costumes this year. KARE 11 calls for a high of 51 in the metro Thursday, which should make for reasonably pleasant upper-40s trick-or-treating temperatures by nightfall. It'll be 49 degrees at 4 p.m. and 46 by 7 p.m., KSTP says.

MPR's Paul Huttner calls it "unseasonably cool," but notes, "Throw a little thinsulate under the costume this year and the kids should be good to go."

Sprinkles may linger into the early evening in northeast Minnesota. Duluth will have a 30 percent chance of rain through the afternoon, with highs in the mid-40s, the News Tribune reports.

The latest forecasts for around the state for Halloween:

Bemidji: Daily high near 42, then mostly cloudy, with a low around 31.

Brainerd: High near 44, then mostly cloudy, with a low of 32.

Thief River Falls: High of 44 during the day, then mostly cloudy evening, low around 32.

Worthington: During the day, high of 47. Night: Mostly cloudy, with a low around 34.

Winona: Daily high near 50, a 20 percent chance of evening rain before 11 p.m. Low around 38.

International Falls: High near 43 during the day, then mostly cloudy, evening low of 32.

The weekend forecast looks pretty good: highs in the upper 40s and partly cloudy in the Twin Cities.
