Wet Halloween Expected For Eastern Texas

7:00 PM CDT | October 29, 2017

Unfortunately, it will be a wet Halloween for many trick-or-treaters. Showers and isolated storms will push across the state on Tuesday. This will be what is referred to as an overrunning event. Moisture will lift over a shallow layer of cold air, courtesy of tomorrow's cold front. When we get these types of setups in the winter, they can and often do make for a hazardous situation with sleet and freezing rain. Thankfully, temperatures will not be anywhere near freezing this time. Nonetheless, it will be a chilly, wet Halloween.

Right now, it looks like most of the rain will be near and east of the I-35 corridor by early evening. Folks to the west will likely have a dry but cool evening. Below, I have attached the simulated radar from one of our more reliable weather models. It loops from 10:00 AM to 10:00 PM Tuesday. Please keep in mind that this is simply a model's "opinion" of what we could see - not an exact forecast. It is in reasonable agreement with the other guidance, though.
