PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) – Rain on Halloween is fairly common for Portland and the Pacific Northwest.
It’s just the time of the year that we start transitioning to rain events and cloudier weather. History shows that we have about a 53 percent chance for rain on Halloween. You may think it’s actually a bit higher than that? Well, the last five years may be contributing to that idea or it might just be a Halloween memory stored in your thoughts.
Well, this year, the forecast is not wet and it’s going to be sunny, what we could call “HalloWIN.” That being said, we may have some of the best conditions across the United States come Thursday.
You may recall the last soaking Halloween was 2015, where we collected nearly 2 inches in Portland. That was quite the Halloween, but no worries this year. The forecast below shows clear conditions, with a lot of sunshine west of the Mississippi River.
No such luck for those states from Alabama to Maine, where the rain is likely and even some snow is possible around the Great Lakes. Alright, so the forecast is currently calling for a nice sunny sky and temperatures in the lower 50s. It will get a little chilly though, so get the kids prepared with some gloves!Remember to follow KOIN 6 News on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
