You might want to wear waders, rubber boots and a raincoat on Monday. The “Alaskan fisherman” costume will be about the only one to stay dry for trick-or-treating.
“Unfortunately, it’s going to be a cool and wet Halloween,” said Steve Reedy, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Seattle.
A storm system moving into the region Friday morning will push October’s dry start further into the rear view mirror.
Tacoma can expect up to 1 1/2 inches of rain Saturday through Monday, according to the Weather Service. Olympia can see up to 2 inches in the same period. Westport could have up to 3 inches and Forks can expect 6 inches.
It’s also going to be breezy. Little witches will still need their brooms to get airborne but gusts could knock over unsecured skeletons and send inflatable jack-o’-lanterns aloft.
Sunday is shaping up to be the wettest and windiest day of the weekend. Gusts could reach 30 miles per hour from the south.
Monday’s high will be 48 degrees. The day will start off wet with an 80 percent chance of rain but improve slightly as the witching hour approaches.
