Good evening! Trick or treat. I’m not doing any of that this year but I’m sure the kiddies are having fun tonight. Partly clear and 51 degrees in Delmar, NY. There is a west breeze at 8 mph. That breeze makes it feel a bit chilly out waiting for the bus this evening. Traffic is a bit goulish too tonight. I guess the gobblins are in line waiting to beg for candy. 

Tonight will be partly cloudy, with a low of 33 degrees at 5am. Three degrees below normal. Southwest wind 3 to 8 mph. In 2016, we had mostly clear skies with more clouds in the early hours of the next day. It got down to 25 degrees. The record low of 22 occurred back in 1964.
