The First Snow Of The Season Could Fall This Weekend

Iowa — Some trick-or-treaters in Iowa -could- be crunching through new-fallen snow this Halloween, though the forecast is still a bit shaky for the weekend.

Meteorologist Kristy Carter at the National Weather Service says some Iowa cities set record high temperatures on Tuesday in the low 80s, but a big cool-down will likely be arriving on Friday.

She says there’s at least a chance of falling flakes this weekend across much of Iowa’s northern half as a storm front arrives.

Winter doesn’t officially arrive until December 21st, a little under two months from now, but Carter says snowfall isn’t out of the question in October.

The forecast for Sheldon shows a halfway decent chance for snow Saturday and Saturday night, but with sunshine and highs above freezing for the next couple of days, there will be some thawing as well. However, trick-or-treaters could be chilly, with highs only expected in the mid 30s for Halloween.
