What's In Store for Boise Trick-or-Treater's?

For the record: yes, that was a lot of rain Monday.

The National Weather Service Office in Boise confirmed that precipitation Oct. 28 was one for the record books: 0.72 inches—trumping the old record of 0.48 inches set in 1924.

Hydrologists say October has actually seen less rain that normal, but September was one of the wettest months on record.

But the big weather question remains: What's the forecast for trick-or-treating?

The outlook for Thursday, Oct. 31, calls for sunshine during the day with a high near 53 and partly cloudy skies in the evening with a low in the mid 30's.

Since the National Weather Service began collecting data (1979), the average Boise temperature on Halloween has been 45 degrees.

The warmest Boise Halloween on record was in 2012—74 degrees. The coldest was in 2002—13 degrees. The wettest was in 1896 and the snowiest was in 1971, when Boise trick-or-treaters were greeted by 1 inch of snow.
