If your kids still haven’t decided on a Halloween costume for trick-or-treating this year, they might want to consider something very warm or layered.
Maybe a little lumberjack or lumberjill? Or perhaps a chilly superhero that wears a winter coat would work.
The forecast for Halloween here in Schuylkill County isn’t exactly conducive to trick-or-treat night. It’s not expected to rain (or snow) so the only element you’ll need to deal with tonight is the cold.
So, whatever your kids (and you) wear for trick-or-treating, just make sure it’s toasty.
According to National Weather Service, the high temperature on Tuesday in Pottsville is only expected to hit 48°. And that high temp follows overnight lows from Monday into Tuesday that dipped below freezing.
Combine these temps with how warm it was last week, and it’s going to feel pretty darn cold out there collecting candy from your neighbors.
The low temperature on Tuesday night is expected to dip to 33°. Temps should be in the low 40s by trick-or-treat time in most Schuylkill County communities.
But at least the wind will be relatively still for Halloween night. That doesn’t come in here until Wednesday, when gusts could reach up to 23 mph during the day.
