If you are a parent with young kids, you are likely looking at the forecast for Halloween and wondering if you need to work layers into the costume or not.

Tonight's forecast is the perfect opportunity to get a "forecast preview" of Halloween evening and take that costume for a test drive.

This evening temperatures will be very close to the temperatures we'll see on Halloween (Tuesday) next week. The only adjustment will probably be a little bit higher of a wind on Halloween. The current forecast looks dry for trick-or-treating as well.

So, yes, it may seen silly or you can make it fun with the kids. But pop them into their costume, step outside and see if they are comfortable enough or not!
