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 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.
