Ensure your outside Halloween decorations are secure and rain jackets ready, as a special weather statement has been issued for the area with significant rainfall possible Wednesday through Friday afternoon.
Rain is forecast to begin Wednesday afternoon and end by Friday afternoon, with 30 to 50 mm possible. Unfortunately, the heaviest rain is forecast to occur on Thursday evening as the kids head out for Halloween.

As well, strong northwesterly to westerly wind gusts of 70 km/h are possible Friday morning into Friday afternoon so you might want to bring in some of those Halloween decorations Thursday night.
Make sure to take extra care if you’re out driving or walking the streets on Halloween, as visibility could be reduced further in the heavy rain.
