AN URGENT weather warning for Halloween has been put in place as flash floods and tornado warnings are set to disappoint deceivers.

Since Sunday, the National Weather Service warned this “unstable weather” would spread across the eastern United States throughout Halloween until Tuesday morning.

Across the country in the Pacific Northwest, candy lovers will likely see “widespread rain” and “high altitude snow.”

Still further west, a strong storm coming from the Gulf of Alaska is expected continue to bring “high winds from the coastal zone” with heavy rain and heavy snowfall Sunday evening.

The heaviest snow is expected in east-central Alaska as well as the northern panhandle.

Just a day before, the Weather Service warned that Texas and the lower Mississippi Valley could experience flash flooding from downpours and thunderstorms.

However, as of Sunday, the warning was said to “decline…as a low pressure system exits to the northeast.”

Still, the National Weather Service said the system could lead to local flash flooding issues.

As the system heads north and spreads outresidents of the Ohio Valley, central/southern Appalachia and the Southeast Interior could see heavy rain and thunderstorms through Tuesday morning.

A tornado watch was also in effect Saturday in parts of Louisiana and Mississippi, with the National Weather Service Attention wind gusts up to 70 mph.

The tornado watch was only in effect until 7 p.m. CDT.

While wet weather could put the brakes on some cheat or cure plans, Joanne Dulin, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service, said weather is a must in areas like Mississippi that have faced drought.

“We haven’t had a lot of rain this summer like we usually see,” Dulin told NPR on Saturday.

“We haven’t seen much precipitation. For Jackson at least, for this month we’re about two and a half inches below what we normally would be.”

Other parts of the Southwest and Central United States are still expected to see good weather for the spooky holiday.
