Halloween forecast: Be prepared when trick-or-treating

Witches' hats and capes will come in useful if you're trick-or-treating this evening.

There will be wet weather from time to time in many locations, as well as blustery winds - particularly in northern and western counties.

Most of the Midlands, Lincolnshire, Yorkshire, Durham, Tyne and Wear and Northumberland will get away with drier conditions.

It will also get dark earlier with more cloud cover this afternoon - so don't forget the torches!
