Halloween Offers a Mix Of Weather 31 Oct 11

Depending on what part of the country you’re in, the Halloween weather ranges from scary to mild. In our area, the forecast is relatively mild with mostly sunny skies this morning then becoming partly cloudy with a high around 53 and winds from the southwest at about 10 miles an hour. As night falls, temperatures will drop to around 40 with winds from the south at 5 to 10 miles an hour.

In the eastern part of the country, it’s quite a different story. Parts of the northeast got socked over the weekend with snow. Some areas got as much as 30 inches. Just under 3-million homes and businesses are still without electricity.

It was 20 years ago today (Halloween) that the Halloween blizzard of 1991 hit Minnesota and other parts of the Midwest. The storm dumped more than two feet of snow in central Minnesota and nearly 37 inches in Duluth.
