CINCINNATI — Tri-State trick-or-treaters are always at the mercy of Mother Nature when it comes to bagging good weather. This time of year, there the weather can be frightful or delightful.

The 9 First Warning Weather Team is tracking a weather system that will bring rain to the Tri-State Thursday and Friday but clears out early Saturday.

High pressure is forecast to move back over the Ohio River Valley, bringing dry, seasonal weather just in time for little ghosts, goblins and witches to go door-to-door for Halloween treats!

Halloween forecast: Clear and seasonal with a high of 61.

Here's the trick-or-treat hourly outlook.

  • 4 p.m. — 61 degrees
  • 5 p.m. — 58 degrees
  • 6 p.m. — 55 degrees
  • 7 p.m. — 54 degrees
  • 8 p.m. — 53 degrees

October's climate data on average puts Cincinnati in the lower 60s for daytime highs and in the lower 40s for overnight lows.

In case you're wondering, last year's Halloween was dry, too, but cooler. The high was 57.

The year before, in 2019, it was soggy with .80" of rain and a high of 58.

This forecast will change. WCPO will continue to update this story throughout the week as Halloween approaches. Check back for the most up-to-date forecast.
