Meteorologists with the National Weather Service predict that Anchorage will have an unusually warm Halloween.

“We’ve hit 50 degrees twice this month, so overall we’ve been very warm,” said Kimberly Hoeppner, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service.

Hoeppner said that the prediction for the high temperature for the day will be 43 degrees. On average, the high temperature for Halloween sits at 33 degrees.

Hoeppner also predicts that it will be wetter than usual as well.

The highest daytime temperature recorded was in 1969 at 50 degrees. The lowest was in 1975, and was recorded at 13 degrees.

The highest snowfall was recorded in 1983 with six inches of snow. In 2015, Anchorage saw three inches of snow depth, according to the National Weather Service.
