Clear and cool night expected for WeHo Halloween festival and Southland trick-or-treaters
There won’t be any fog blanketing tree-lined roads or howling wind rattling creaky shutters to raise the fright factor for Halloween night in Southern California on Monday, the National Weather Service said.
“To me, it should be blowing. You know, kind of spooky?” Weather Specialist Bonnie Bartling said of her idea of a perfect Halloween night. “Well, it’s just a little bit breezy around here. Doesn’t look like much of anything for winds.”
Nor will it be too chilly or rainy or much of anything that could make it creepy in Los Angeles, she said.
In fact, it will be cloudy during the day and clear at night with temperatures hovering in the low to mid-50s in the valleys, downtown and along the coast, Bartling said.
The weather should be perfect for West Hollywood’s annual Halloween Carnival.
The annual festival, which has a disco theme this year, will take place along Santa Monica Boulevard between Doheny Drive and La Cienega Boulevard from 6 to 11 p.m., organizers said.
Temperatures are expected to climb through the week, peaking on Thursday when it’s predicted to hit 82 degrees downtown, Bartling said.
A weekend rain storm dumped more than half an inch of rain in the mountains but only a fraction of that downtown and along the coast.
