Will Coats Be Required Over Halloween Costumes?

Nothing worse than having to cover up a great costume with a big puffy winter coat, but it's a real possibility as the forecast over the next week begins to change dramatically. That means it's time to get creative if you don't want to cover up a great costume.

The weather forecasters at NBC Chicago do not see much hope for us getting above freezing on Halloween night.

According to extended forecasts, highs on Halloween could struggle to get out of the low-40s, and low temperatures could dip below 30 degrees in one of the coldest blasts of air so far this season.
