The prediction for Halloween night: Damp demons, soggy specters and wet witches.

“You don’t want this forecast — it’s scary,” National Weather Service meteorologist Deb Elliott said.

Rain is expected to hit Metro Detroit Saturday afternoon, and hang around until long past the witching hour, Elliott said.

“About the time the trick-or-treaters will be out, it’s going to be raining,” Elliott said. “It’ll start with a light rain, and increase throughout the evening. So people are probably going to need raincoats and umbrellas with their costumes.”

The extended forecast, however, looks brighter.

“The next couple days are looking good,” Elliott said. “We could have a little rain leftover in the early morning Sunday, but it’ll dry out. Sunday actually looks like a nice day, and it’ll stay nice throughout the week.”

Next week will see temperatures in the mid-60s, with overnight lows in the upper 40s, Elliott said.

“It’ll be a nice, mellow entrance into November,” she said.
