Witches’ Brew of Clouds, Flurries, and Chills Unfolds Over the Region
Kenora, with its picturesque surroundings, finds itself under a mostly cloudy sky as Halloween morning unfolds. At the break of dawn at 5:40 am CDT, the temperatures are already lurking at a chilly -7°C. The day holds a modest promise of flurries with a 40% chance, adding a touch of winter magic to the Halloween festivities.
Today’s Weather Brew:
As little ghouls and goblins prepare for a day of trick-or-treating, the weather too has its brew of surprises. The clouds are expected to hold dominion, with a chance of flurries to keep things interesting. The winds from the west, picking up pace at 20 km/h later in the morning, will bring along a cold whisper, with a high of -1°C. Morning wind chill values are expected to be at a bone-chilling -12°C, easing slightly to -6°C as the afternoon rolls in. The UV index stays low at 2, ensuring the day remains kind to the skin.
Evening Wardrobe Suggestion:
As the evening descends, trick-or-treaters are advised to bundle up to keep the cold at bay. Layering is essential, with thermal undergarments, followed by warm clothing, and finally, the spooky costumes. Don’t forget the gloves, hats, and a pair of sturdy boots to keep the toes warm. Reflective tapes on costumes or carrying glow sticks can ensure visibility on the somewhat chilly and possibly flurry-filled streets.
As Halloween night falls, the sky is expected to clear, perhaps to make way for the witches’ broom flights. The wind, however, continues its cold hum from the southwest at 20 km/h. Night-time temperatures are poised at -7°C with a wind chill making it feel like -14°C as the night progresses.
November’s First Whisper:

Despite a high of -2°C, the wind chill will remind of winter’s approach at -14°C in the morning, easing to -6°C by the afternoon. The UV index remains low, marking a gentle transition into the month known for its chilly demeanour.
Kenora’s Halloween is set against a backdrop of chilling breezes and a chance of flurries, making it a quintessential autumn day with a touch of winter’s whisper.
