Updated Halloween Forecast Doesn’t Look Too Scary For Duluth – Superior Area
Anyone who has have lived in the Northland for awhile knows that the weather on Halloween can vary drastically from year to year. Of course, the extreme example would be the 1991 Halloween blizzard that dropped nearly 37 inches of snow in the area.
However, it's usually a matter of just how cold will it be and will there be any snow at all. As Halloween 2022 approaches, we're getting a clearer picture of what Mother Nature has in store.
This week started warm but windy before thunderstorms led us into a drop in temperatures. However, it appears these cooler temps won't last very long.
According to a Tuesday afternoon Facebook post from the National Weather Service in Duluth, a warmup is on the way and it's likely to linger into Halloween.
If you were hoping for another Halloween blizzard, it looks like you'll have to keep your fingers crossed until next year.
Chief Meteorologist Justin Liles, from our media partners at WDIO-TV, agrees that a warmup is on the way later this week and beyond.
Currently, Justin's extended forecast has the warmup lasting past Halloween. It may be a bit windy, but trick-or-treating should be fairly pleasant regardless:
- Wednesday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 45. West wind 5 to 10 mph.
- Thursday: Partly sunny, with a high near 51. Southeast wind 5 to 10 mph becoming south in the morning. Winds could gust as high as 15 mph.
- Friday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 56. Breezy, with a south wind 10 to 15 mph, with gusts as high as 20 mph.
- Saturday: Partly sunny, with a high near 57. South wind 5 to 10 mph, with gusts as high as 15
- Sunday: Partly sunny, with a high near 55. Southwest wind 5 to 10 mph.
- Halloween: Mostly sunny, with a high near 52. South wind 5 to 10 mph, with gusts as high as 15 mph.
- Tuesday: Partly sunny, with a high near 54. Southwest wind 5 to 10 mph, with gusts as high as 20 mph.
I guess we should get out and enjoy it while we can as the National Weather Service recently predicted the Northland will soon face a frigid La Nina winter.
