It looks like it’s not likely to rain on Halloween — and in fact, it rarely does, the National Weather Service says.
Despite annual angst over the prospects for trick-or-treating, in Stockton it has rained just two of the past 10 Halloweens, the Weather Service says.
And even on those days, the candle in your jack-o-lantern probably didn’t even flicker.
0.02 inches of rain fell in 2003 and 0.01 inches fell in 2008. That’s not enough to give the Wicked Witch of the West even a mild skin irritation.
Record rainfall for Halloween, by the way, is 0.49 inches way back in 1974, four years before we were introduced to Michael Myers. So I think we’re safe — if not, perhaps, from yet another Halloween remake.
