A Freeze Warning will be in effect from late Friday night through early Saturday morning for nearly the entire News Channel 15 viewing area.

The passing of a strong cold front today brings some cloudiness and the chance for spotty showers or sprinkles this Halloween. Highs today will likely occur this morning, as the colder air and cloud cover prevent temperatures from rising much this afternoon. This front will also mark the leading edge of very gusty northwest winds whipping through the area at a rate of 30-40 mph.

Trick-or-treaters will need to layer up under the costumes this evening as temperatures fall into the the upper 30s. Windy conditions may even produce wind chill values below freezing, maybe even into the 20s, during trick-or-treat hours and with a little moisture available you may see a few flurries fly.


A strong and very cold Canadian air mass drops southward into the region today bringing the coldest air of the season for the end of the week and the beginning of the weekend. We could see some scattered light showers or sprinkles during the day under variably cloud skies. By later Friday evening there's even a chance we could see some lake effect rain/snow showers streaming southward from the southern tip of Lake Michigan. This will primarily affect those along the state line to northern Vermilion County, Illinois and Warren County, Indiana.

Temperatures are expected to plummet overnight and again overnight Saturday with low falling to between 25 and 30 degrees. A widespread freeze is expected during both nights bringing an end to the growing season.

The rest of the weekend appears to be fair, but cool as highs will only reach into the mid 40s on both Saturday and Sunday.  Lows will fall into the 20s once again early Sunday before a more moderate air mass begins to take temperatures back into more typical readings. 

Also, we'll see another weather system move in early next week to bring chances of rain showers on Monday and Tuesday.  Highs for those two days will return to the low 60s on Monday and fall to the low 50s on Tuesday.
