Halloween Weather in Illinois

Here are some Halloween statistics for locations across Illinois. Typical for Illinois, Halloween can be either near freezing or downright balmy. This year’s Halloween will likely be warmer than normal with highs ranging from the low 60s in northeastern IL to the upper 70s in southern IL (map below), but not record breaking. Last year was much cooler with highs in the 50s and low 60s, and a band of rain from St. Louis to parts of Chicago.
