Will Utah weather be better for trick-or-treating on Saturday or Sunday?

There’s not a lot of rain in the forecast, but there is some.

(Francisco Kjolseth | The Salt Lake Tribune) Michelle Binion accompanies her daughter Lizzie, 5, as they walk with friends while trick or treating on Saturday, Oct. 31, 2020, as they visit houses who signed up for the SugarHood Halloween, with every treat giving participant agreeing to abide by CDC Covid safety standards.

Are you taking your kids trick-or-treating Saturday, the day before Halloween? Or will you go door to door on Sunday, when it’s actually Halloween?

Some Utahns are basing that decision on their religious convictions. But if you’re looking to the weather to help you decide, well, the forecast is pretty much the same for both nights.

According to the National Weather Service, it will be in the upper 50s at 5 p.m. on Saturday, falling to the upper 40s by 10 p.m. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies during the day, and there’s a “slight” chance of rain on Saturday evening.

On Sunday, the forecast calls for temperatures in the upper 50s at 5 p.m. and the mid-to upper 40s by 10 p.m. There’s a slight chance of rain during the day, and it’s expected to be mostly cloudy Sunday evening.

In the Salt Lake City area, it will be sunny and 57 on Thursday, sunny and 63 on Friday, and mostly sunny and 61 on Saturday, and there’s that slight chance of rain on Sunday, with a high of 57 expected.

Looking ahead, there’s a chance of rain on Monday night, and a chance of rain and snow on Tuesday.

There’s no precipitation in the forecast for southern Utah. And there’s not a lot of difference in the pre-Halloween/Halloween forecasts in the St. George area, either — low 70s at 5 p.m., falling to the low 60s at 10 p.m. on Saturday; about 70 at 5 p.m., falling to the upper 50s at 10 p.m. on Sunday.
