Here's your trick-or-treating forecast

Ghosts and goblins in Buffalo and the Northtowns: Looks like you've lucked out. Kids in the Southtowns, make sure you bring an umbrella.

The lake-effect rain that's deluging the Southtowns this morning is expected to make it way north in the Buffalo metro area before drifting back south.

But according to the meteorologists at the National Weather Service in Buffalo, it looks like the rain will be out of the area for Buffalo and Northtowns around trick-or-treating time.

The rain could be a factor during trick-or-treating time for the Southtowns.

Aside from rain it's going to chilly with temperatures in the upper 30s Tuesday evening.

In the meantime, there's a flash flood watch in effect through Wednesday morning due to the lake-effect rain hitting this morning.

Here's what the National Weather Service watch said this morning:

"Heavy lake effect rain may produce localized flash flooding. A band of heavy lake effect rain over southern Erie and Wyoming counties will move north towards Buffalo and Batavia this morning, before moving back south this afternoon. Additional rainfall amounts of 1 to 2 inches are possible where the lake effect rain lasts the longest. Excessive runoff from the heavy rainfall may result in flooding of low lying areas and also small streams and creeks. Urban flooding in possible in the Buffalo metro area. Drainage inlets clogged by leaves may increase the risk of street flooding."
