      Halloween forecast hanging by a thread

      The Halloween forecast is holding steady as a cold front is expected to slice through the RGV Halloween between 2 and 10pm.

      This cold front is part of a much larger storm system scraping east across the middle of the US.

      My forecast is calling for widespread showers and thunderstorms along the front as it slowly pushes east/southeast throughout the afternoon and evening. Some rain may be heavy at times so localized street flooding may be a concern.

      Remember, if you hear thunder while the kids are out trick or treating get them indoors then check the radar here on valleycentral.com or visit our mobile app for the latest weather information; lightning and children do not mix.

      The heaviest rain and best chance for severe weather will stay to our north.

      If the front lingers off shore it may act as a focal point for more showers and thunderstorms Friday but so far the Friday football forecast only calls for a slight chance for rain that evening.
