Halloween weather for trick or treaters looks wet but not the worst ever
Hurricane Sandy may be a pale shadow of what she was Monday night, her lasting impression continues to impact the weather in Niagara, other parts of Southern Ontario, Quebec and the Maritimes.
Today is Halloween and trick or treaters are faced with gathering candy under wet conditions.
Meteorologist Geoff Coulson says the big impact is lingering showers because of Sandy as she continues to weaken.
Coulson says the showers will be hit or miss with some areas getting showers while others not getting rain between the hours of five to eight this evening.
He says the radar is showing a large area of scattered showers circulating slowly around the centre of what's left of Sandy and that centre is currently over the Niagara Region.
The shower activity should be light, but Environment Canada is not ruling out a heavier downburst.
Coulson says he has seen many Halloween nights in his time and this does not stack up as the worst.
He says you just have to be aware of the weather by dressing your kids in more layers and arm them with an umbrella.
Temperatures are expected to fall to around six or seven tonight.
