An approaching coastal storm could bring heavy rain to eastern Pennsylvania this weekend and potentially put a damper on Halloween-related activities including local parties, parades and/or Trick-or-Treats.
The National Weather Service has issued a hazardous weather outlook for the Lehigh Valley in which it states that “there is potential for strong winds and heavy rain, which may result in localized flooding” from the storm.
“Considerable uncertainty remains in the timing and track of the low and resultant sensible weather impacts to the area,” the weather service stated. “Stay tuned to the latest forecasts.”
A number of public events are planned in the area this weekend, which is when most local municipalities will be hosting Trick-or-Treat.
Fountain Hill, Bethlehem and Upper Saucon Township will have Trick-or-Treat on Friday, Oct. 26 from 6 to 8 p.m.
The Springtown Halloween Parade is scheduled to be held Sunday at 1 p.m. and the Springfield Township Trick-or-Treat was scheduled to be held Sunday from 6 to 8 p.m., however it was moved to Wednesday, Oct. 31 “due to popular demand,” according to officials.
According to the latest National Weather Service forecast for Hellertown, rain is likely from Friday evening until Sunday around midday. Temperatures are forecast to be cool, with lows in the lower 40s and highs near 50.
*There is no rain date for Trick-or-Treat in Hellertown and Lower Saucon Township.
