  • Let's hope that tonight's Halloween weather doesn't come to this.
Tonight's trick-or-treating extravaganza in Cleveland, running officially from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., is most likely going to be a scary one — at least weather-wise.

This fine Halloween, Cleveland's National Weather Service is calling for rain, gusts of wind running up to 60 miles per hour, a flood warning and also, horrendously, the potential for snow.

Making the forecast even worse, the weather service is saying that electricity outages are possible. (Although locals saddled with Cleveland Public Power know that power could go out at any time, high winds or not.)

Temperatures, which as of this afternoon have languished in the 60s, could potentially drop as much as 30 degrees.

Be safe out there, Clevelanders.
