GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — We had a cool evening for trick-or treaters, as temperatures in most areas fell into the mid-upper 30s during the evening. The wind chill factors were around 30. It was about 10 degrees cooler than last year and about 5 to 8 degrees cooler than average.
Halloween brought our first measurable snow of the year to Grand Rapids, 4/10ths of an inch…not much…and it pretty much melted as it fell.
The rain and snow showers tapered off in the afternoon and most roads were dry in the evening.

It’s too bad skies weren’t clear. The moon is about 90% full now. Civil twilight is around 7:05 p.m. which means it will be completely dark at that time. However, because of some of clouds it gets darker a few minutes earlier. The sunrise comes later this week (before the time change) than any other week of the year. Sunrise on Nov. 1 is 8:17 am in downtown G.R.
Winds have calmed down to 5 to 10 mph.
There may be a bit of a trick the morning after Halloween. For more on the weather ahead in November, check out Bill’s Blog.
