Faced with the threat of rain more New Jersey towns have moved their official trick or treating time away from Halloween night.

Chief Meteorologist Dan Zarrow said the morning rain will come to an end in plenty of time for the kids to collect their candy on Halloween night.

"It still looks like we'll catch breaks of dry weather at just the right time for trick-or-treaters. The evening will end with thunderstorms, heavy rain, and fierce winds continuing into the early hours of Friday," Zarrow said.

Temperatures will be ideal with widespread high temperatures around 70 degrees and a bit on the humid side.
