Bundle Up Those Trick-Or-Treaters: Windchills Expected In The Teens

Northwest Iowa — When the little ghosts and goblins go out to trick-or-treat Halloween night, the question will be — costume over coat or underneath? The question of weather to wear a coat probably won’t enter into it. It’s going to be cold.

That’s according to the National Weather Service in Sioux Falls. Halloween is variable in northwest Iowa. Some years it’s kind of warm, other years it’s cold. We talked to Warning Coordination Meteorologist Peter Rogers on Monday. He tells us this year it won’t be warm.

The high temperature for Sheldon is only supposed to make it up to an even freezing 32 degrees on Halloween Day. Fortunately the chance for snow has left us for a while after this weekend. The weather service says the next week looks dry at this point, with the first chance for precip on Monday, November 6th. The first few days of November will see a slight warming trend, with highs near 50 by the weekend.
