UK Halloween 2018

Written by on October 29, 2018 in United Kingdom & Ireland with 0 Comments

Halloween arrives on Wednesday this year and whether you’re out trick or treating Wednesday, Thursday or Friday, the overall theme turns from cool and settled to begin the week to milder and more showery midweek (Halloween itself) to potentially very wet and windy by the time we reach Friday evening.

Once dark (typically by 5.15/5.30pm now), temps will naturally drop with northern areas turning frosty quickly after dark. You may want to wrap the kids up warm. Thursday shall be similar to Wednesday, dipping to between +1 and 7C. By Friday with increasing winds, it may feel as cold as the previous two nights despite the air being 2-4C warmer than Wednesday and Thursday nights.

The current cold air mass begins to erode mid week as winds flip from east to west.

Thursday evening has a mix of cloud, clear, breeze and showers, nothing too disruptive.

Hopefully Friday’s night’s storm system with worst wind and rain arrives later allowing the kids time to have fun before turning miserable.

At the moment the GFS has the strongest winds crossing the UK late evening and through the early hours of Saturday.
