First Alert Day Halloween - potential severe weather

Wednesday night weather forecast: 11pm

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - After off and on rain all day Wednesday, Thursday will likely follow up with a line of storms cutting across the region right around the time trick-or-treaters will be wanting to hit the road.

There is also a First Alert in effect for Halloween.

The possibility of rain and even thunderstorms will be in place all evening long. It seems likely that the line will begin in the mountains in the late afternoon. Then it will march across the WBTV viewing area through prime trick-or-treat hours. The foothills through Charlotte are looking wet and stormy between 5 and 7pm. Our eastern counties will be closer to 8pm.

It isn’t looking promising for anyone as of now. If you venture out, make sure you download the WBTV weather app (which you can download for free here) in case a warning is issued for your area. Plus, you can keep a close eye on the radar.

Unfortunately, it is looking like a pretty wet trick-or-treat forecast.

This will all be out of here by Friday and the weekend looks good too! Ready for fall-like weather? We will be in the upper 50s to low 60s. Overnight lows will be in the 30s! We may even see frost before the weekend is done!

Don’t gamble on Thursday, keep a close eye to the sky!
