Get ready Texas and Louisiana! It looks like Mother Nature is going to bring us a huge cold front just in time for Halloween.

How cold will it be for Texas and Louisiana for Halloween 2023?

Cold... Really cold! In fact, Chief Meteorologist Jason Simpson from WTVM-TM says, 'The first big surge of arctic air this season gets all the way to the South by Halloween. Look at Texas! That's a projected 30-35 degrees below normal on Halloween.'

Excuse me, sir, a 30-35° drop? As I sit here in the studio at 6:30 a.m. on Thursday, October 27, it's currently 75° out with an expected high of 85°. That means we're looking at highs of 50 - 55°? Whoa!

Don't believe me? Check this out!

I don't know about you, but I think we could use some rain before we could use a cold front, but that's only if I were to have a say in the matter, which I don't. So, I decided to check with our weather partners, the Weather Channel, and they agreed with Simpson's forecast.
