The sunset will be a little after 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday so grab a flashlight before you head out!

Tuesday: Best chance for dry weather. It will be comfortable with temperatures falling from the low 60s to the upper 50 during trick or treat time. Winds will be a little gusty around 20 to 25 mph.

Wednesday: Rounds of rain throughout the day and into the evening will lead to puddles. Be ready to dress the kids for a cool and soggy Halloween. Don't forget the rain gear. The grass will be wet from daytime showers and there will likely be rain falling at 6 p.m. Temperatures will fall into the 50s during trick-or-treat. Any breaks in the showers for the evening will be brief as rain sticks around in spots through the night. A Flood Watch has been issued for Champaign, Clark, Greene, Montgomery, Preble, Butler, Warren and Clinton counties starting Wednesday 8 p.m. until Friday 8 a.m. Wet leaves on the road for the evening as well could make driving slick.
