Hope your costume looks good underneath a puffer. Forecasters are predicting snow for some parts of the U.S. this Halloween.

Trick-or-treaters from northern Missouri to the western Great Lakes should prepare for the chance of snow on Thursday, according to The Weather Channel. But those on the east coast won’t avoid the spooky weather either as rain and thunderstorms are predicted from eastern Texas up to the Southeast, into the Ohio Valley, the mid-Atlantic region, and the Northeast.

Temperatures in Minneapolis and Kansas City could drop down to around freezing, with highs in the mid-30s. It will be warmer in the east, with temperatures in New York City expected around 68 degrees Fahrenheit.

The western half of the country can expect a balmy Halloween, though. Los Angeles is expected to have a 78-degree day and that temperature will drop to about 71 degrees in San Francisco as major parts of the state are battling wildfires. 

Temperatures will drop in Denver to about 37 degrees and 47 degrees in Boise but there will still be plenty of sunshine and clear skies in both cities.

But if traipsing around for sweets isn't your thing, it’s not too late to book a last-minute Halloween escape out west. 

Try to visit some of the best Halloween celebrations taking place around the country. And if your last-minute travel plans also necessitate a last-minute costume, Travel + Leisure has you covered with quick, travel-inspired costume ideas.
