After a nice day Tuesday in the Decatur area, with the temperature in the mid-70s and a few clouds, trick-or-treaters could have some isolated to scattered showers and storms to dodge on Wednesday night, according to forecasters.
“We’re looking for a 20 percent chance of rain and storms from midday to sunset” on Wednesday, said Chelly Amin, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service office in Huntsville. “Overnight, we’re anticipating a line of showers and storms that could be strong to potentially severe.
"The main threats are very heavy rain and possibly damaging winds, around 50 to 60 mph," she said. "There’s no mention of anything else right now.”
That activity is expected to increase after 10 p.m., according to Amin.
“The front will come through during the day Thursday, and it may be about 10 degrees cooler,” Amin said.
The temperature on Thursday night is expected to drop to the mid-40s, she said.
“People need to be aware that we are moving into our second severe weather season,” Amin said.
