Halloween Forecast: Light Rain and Sneaker Waves


Halloween is almost here and rain is in the forecast.

According to the Eureka office of the National Weather Service, a cold front will push through on the spookiest night of the year, bringing rain and nighttime temperatures in the 40s on the coast and inland, so bundle up.

Sunset is set for 6:14 p.m. with complete darkness setting in by 6:42 p.m. The moon is at the first quarter mark but will likely be mostly hidden by clouds, making for an even darker night, according to NWS.

In addition, a beach hazard statement has been issued for Monday between 3 a.m. and 9 p.m. due to a threat of sneaker waves along the North Coast, with “larger and unexpected waves expected along the coast during the morning hours” and the afternoon and evening seeing “larger breaking waves from 15 to 20 feet.”
