Heading to that dope Halloween Party you’ve been planning to check out for months? Bar hopping in downtown Los Angeles? Parading around West Hollywood with the rest of the weirdos? Welp, looks like the weather will not be cooperating with you on Halloween night.

According to multiple sources, a cold front will be rolling through the southland with chances of heavy rain in L.A. shooting through the roof.


This from the Weather Underground website:

“A fast moving cold front will spread rain along the central coast by midday Friday. The precipitation will move inland over San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties Friday afternoon…then southeast across Ventura and Los Angeles counties through Friday evening. Showers will persist into Saturday morning across the region…with a chance of residual showers mainly on north facing mountain slopes by Saturday afternoon and lingering into early Sunday morning. Most areas are expected to see 3 to 4 hours of rain with the initial front…then turn showery as the front moves east. There will also be a slight chance of thunderstorms over San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties Friday night as colder air moves in aloft. Any thunderstorms would have the potential to bring brief heavy rain and small hail.”

And weather.com is now aligning itself with that gloomy forecast for downtown Los Angeles:

“Showers in the evening with a steady rain developing overnight. The rain will be heavy at times. Low 57F. Winds SW at 5 to 10 mph. Chance of rain 100%. Rainfall around a half an inch.”

Alas, we can usually count on perfect weather for holidays here in the city of angels, but I guess that’s for the other 364 days of the year.

Whatever your plans, stay dry and stay safe!
