Don’t forget your little ghoul’s jacket before heading out the door to trick-or-treat Tuesday.
Northern Utah trick-or-treaters can expect mostly clear conditions for Halloween, with a few clouds making an appearance in the evening, according to the National Weather Service of Salt Lake City’s forecast.
Tuesday’s high will reach 54 degrees in Ogden, but will begin to drop as the sun sets. By 8 p.m., temperatures will reach 41 degrees. There will also be a slight, southeasterly wind throughout the night.
The sun will set just before 6:30 p.m. in Ogden.
- Plan your trick-or-treat route and make sure you know where your kids are going. A parent should always accompany younger children. Teens should go out in groups and stay in well-lit areas.
- Decorate costumes with reflective stripes or lights so children can be seen. Flashlights, glow sticks and light colored clothing are also recommended.
- Look both ways before crossing the street. Always walk on sidewalks when possible and use crosswalks.
- Don’t cross between parked cars
- Visit homes that have the porch light on and never go inside.
- Check your child’s candy before allowing them to eat any of it. Throw away opened or loose candy or any brands you may be unfamiliar with.
For those hosting trick-or-treaters, the Red Cross recommends lighting the area around the door well, sweeping and clearing the sidewalks of any obstacles, and restraining your pets.
Drivers should use extra caution during the twilight hours and anticipate lots of pedestrian activity in residential areas.
