I try not to put too much stock in these but since it IS the most important day of the year, I listen daily for the forecast. AS of now, they're calling for sunny and 60 for Halloween. We have to get through a few days of cold, rainy stuff but improving on Monday and supposedly better on the 31st.
Hope everyone is blessed with ideal weather!:jol:

Cloudy & 61 at the Jersey shore. But like my neighbor in south florida said. "only fools and yankees predict the weather"

OMG, I drive myself NUTS with this every year. As of now, Accuweather says showers possible but weather.com says cloudy. This will change back and forth about 3000 times between now and Halloween, forcing me to bite my nails and get all stressed out that it will rain on the big day.

Sadly, it WILL be raining this Saturday for my party. Happens EVERY year this way. The good news is (as of now) there's no rain between Sunday and the 31st, so I should be able to set everything up a day or two early and go check out some other local haunter's setups as well as watch horror movies all day. :)

ScareySuzie,
how is the tot down there? i'm up in cranford , originally from belleville. we moved about 3 years ago. we went from giving out almost 100 bags of candy down to almost none. last year we got like 3 tot's. my mom had a 3 family in belleville where i was on the first, my mother was on the 2nd, and my sister was on the 3rd floor. we would all buy like 30 bags of candy and rid of almost all of it. these people around here don't decorate at all. my mom is also down there in toms river. seems like that's where everyone is moving these days. brick, toms river, bayville. people used to ask me where's belleville. i told them it's where "uncle junior" lives.

well, it seems to changed overnight on a daily basis, but currently weather.com says:

60 high, 40 low, partly cloudy during the day with 20% chance of precip, showers overnight, 60% chance of precip. However, event conditions rank at a 9 for tuesday, so that's nice...

I haven't bothered watching the forecast for Halloween. I'm too busy fighting all this wind that the Jersey shore area has been getting for the past week. Today it's cool and crisp and as of right now the wind is only moderate, but I know that once I get outside today to try to set up more stuff, the wind will pick up and it will be another wasted day!

In the last few days it's gone from 30% chance of showers, to 10%, and now back to 30%, always around 50-55 degrees.

Oh well, hope for the best, plan for the worst . . .

I gotta quit watching these forecasts. We've gone from a predicted "sunny and 60" two days ago to a rain/snow mix and a high in the 40's. I know it will change again so as was mentioned, plan for the best and prepare for the worst. As much as I'd hate to, I can scale back and just do a simple set-up in the front yard, but that leaves more than half of my stuff un-usable as I really don't want to put it up (or tear it down) in the rain.:(
Oh well..thinking good thoughts here.:jol:

Accuweather says 58 for a high and partly sunny. Weather.com has rain/snow showers with a high of 47. With these two examples...I don't think I'm going to check again until at least Saturday.

I've been watching the weather too for my area. So far in the 60s with sun/clouds. I'll take it but it is still too far to predict and it can change over the weekend. I usually buy my Halloween candy on Sunday or Monday before Halloween because if rain is in the forecast, could mean a lot of pounds of candy not in my bowl but on parts of my body that shouldn't be there from eating it. Also, I wouldn't be setting up too much on the lawn and I would just decorate the porch with props.
