There's nothing spooky about this year’s Halloween forecast.

Our 9 First Warning Weather crystal ball reveals it will most definitely be a treat for little ghosts and goblins on the prowl in their neighborhoods, in search of bewitching goodies.

And this is no hocus-pocus: For the first time in five years, the magic spell for rain will be broken.

This year’s Halloween witch’s weather brew will stir up unseasonably warm temperatures, forecast in the lower 70s under mostly sunny skies. The closest we’ve gotten to that steamy potion was Halloween 2013, when the high temperatures reached 66 degrees. (And if you remember, it rained black cats and bats most of that day.)

With highs in the 70s this year, pumpkins could nest in a hot patch of fear that could send werewolves and monsters into hiding when the witch's broom goes flying.

Here’s to a Happy and safe Halloween for 2016!
