Do you have big plans this Halloween weekend? Amazing, so does The Weather! A very spooky storm is headed our way, slated to dump drenching rain on New York City and gust us with ghoulish winds that set tree branches scraping at our windows like cold dead demon fingers clawing their way inside our souls.

All in all, The Weather is really bringing it this Halloween, and may even show up costumed as a Sexy Nor'easter. You can't buy this one in a store.

AccuWeather predicts that things will look fairly bright—"some sun, then clouds"—through Friday, with highs in the low 50s and lows in the mid-40s. The screams really start on Saturday, when temps will drop into the 40s but, by some meteorological sorcery, will feel like they've stalled out in the low 30s. The rain will pound, the winds will howl, and a very scary time will doubtless be had by all who try to take above ground subway lines. (Which, because the L train has decided it doesn't do weekends anymore, may be more of you than usual!)

The windy rain should begin to die down overnight on Saturday, but be advised, its ghost will continue to haunt us for at least another day: Prepare for a cloudy, breezy Sunday with crisp fall temps (45 to 49 degrees, or, roughly the resting temperature of a pumpkin's guts) and some spectral morning showers. As for actual Halloween—from which we are exactly one week out you gourd heads!!—things currently look pretty OK: A low of 42, a high of 52, and skies of "variable cloudiness," per an AccuWeather prediction that could and almost certainly will change over the next seven days.

All this chaos comes to us courtesy of Hurricane Willa, which made landfall in Mexico yesterday, hitting the country with what CBS crunchily calls "supercharged Pacific energy." Forecasters expect Willa will pelt the South with thunderstorms before making her way to the East Coast, potentially battering the stretch between Virginia and New England with 50 to 70 mph winds and 20-foot waves. The mid-Atlantic will likely find itself knocked sideways by slanted rain, and some unlucky souls up north (and in New Jersey) may even see snow. OR, Willa may make her way out to sea, never to be seen again. Only the Pumpkin Head knows for sure.
