Currently in Miami — October 31, 2023: Good weather for trick-or-treaters

Plus, a frigid Halloween night nationwide.

The weather, currently.

Good weather for trick or treaters

A general lack of moisture will result in another mostly dry day across South Florida again on Halloween. Pesky showers will likely pop up once again along the immediate east coast, but rain chances inland will be minimal. Sunny skies and relatively light winds will allow temperatures to climb into the mid to upper 80s during the afternoon, but overnight lows will be slightly cooler around 70 degrees. There will be a brief period of rain activity on Wednesday as a frontal boundary passes through South Florida, but the only significant change in the weather behind the front will be lower humidity. On Friday and over the weekend is when moisture could finally increase again to generate some rainier days. Despite the benign weather conditions, we will continue to deal with King Tide flooding boosted by sea level rise in many low spots and coastal areas.

El tiempo, actualmente.

Niveles de humedad bajos nos dejarán con otro día generalmente seco en el sur de Florida el martes. Aguaceros probablemente volverán a aparecer a lo largo de la costa este inmediata, pero las posibilidades de lluvia tierra adentro serán mínimas. Los cielos soleados y los vientos relativamente ligeros permitirán que las temperaturas aumenten hasta los rangos medio a alto de los 80 grados durante la tarde, pero las mínimas nocturnas serán un poco más frescas, alrededor de los 70 grados. Habrá un breve período de lluvia el miércoles cuando un frente pase por el sur de Florida, pero no se esperan cambios significativos en el tiempo detrás del frente salvo por un descenso en humedad ambiental. El viernes y durante el fin de semana es cuando la humedad finalmente podría aumentar para generar algunos días más lluviosos. Aunque el tiempo será benigno, seguimos lidiando con inundaciones en areas bajas y costeras debido a las grandes mareas y el aumento en el nivel del mar.

What you need to know, currently.

Temperatures 10 to 25°F colder than normal will shroud most of the United States on Halloween, bringing a chill to any planned spooky festivities.

Freeze warnings stretch from southern California to Louisiana to eastern Pennsylvania, and some places like western North Dakota may even dip below zero Fahrenheit on Tuesday morning.

If you have a Halloween costume that’s winter-adaptable, I’d recommend it. Like maybe “Lavender Haze” Taylor instead of “Shake it Off” Taylor??
