While the weather is expected to be frightfully cold in much of B.C. this Halloween, those who venture outdoors may be in for a treat.
A rare full “blue” moon is expected on Saturday night, the second full moon this month.
The last time trick or treaters went out under a full moon in B.C. was in 2001, but the last Halloween full moon in all time zones was in 1944, according to the Farmer’s Almanac.
As for the weather, if you are in Metro Vancouver it’s likely going to be clear and sunny during the day with a high of 11 C, and then partly cloudy at night with a low of 5 C, according to Environment and Climate Change Canada.
Elsewhere in B.C., the Prince George and Williams Lake areas should see a mix of sun and cloud with a high of around 4 C or 5 C and an overnight low of 2 C, while in the Okanagan it will likely be overcast and 10 C, dipping down to 4 C overnight with a slight chance of showers.
In the Northern region of Dease Lake it looks sunny during the day and freezing at night, plunging to – 7 C overnight.
In the Central B.C. region, some communities may have snow on Saturday. The agency is forecasting a good chance of flurries in Smithers during the day but showers overnight.
