Climate Statistics for Halloween

During some  years, the parka has made the most practical costume when out trick-or-treating.  Other years, instead of a light sabre or magic wand, an umbrella has proven a valuable accessory.  The range of conditions over the years for trick-or-treaters in Sioux Falls, Sioux City and Huron are listed below.
