With the haul of candy Izzy and Mia Poch-Williams took in at Red Lion's Halloween parade Monday, there's little need to go trick-or-treating later this week.

But the 8-year-old Windsor twins said they are looking forward to the yearly tradition.

"We get to spend time with family," Mia said.

"And get all the candy we want," Izzy chimed in.

The girls were dressed as Monster High girls, a mix of vampires and Barbies, and will again don the costumes to collect candy on Halloween.

A year after Superstorm Sandy wreaked havoc on trick-or-treating events

across York County, some of which were canceled, Ryan Coyle, abc27 meteorologist, said rain will likely fall Thursday but will miss trick-or-treating.

That is good news for Danielle and Chris Colarusso of Red Lion, who plan to take their 3-year-old son, Zachary, trick-or-treating.

"The weather looks like its going to be nice," Chris Colarusso said.

Weather: There are two chances for rain on Thursday, but both are expected to miss trick-or-treating, Coyle said.

A misting-type rain is expected in the morning and a steady rain is expected that night.

"The good news is we're going to sneak trick-or-treating between those two chances," Coyle said.

However, with Halloween still a couple of days away, the timeframe when the rain could start falling could change, meaning trick-or-treaters might want to carry an umbrella with their witches' brooms or fake vampire teeth.

"Things could move up a couple of hours, and (rain) could become an issue," Coyle said.

Thursday will see an unseasonably warm high of 67. The warm temperatures will stick around Friday, the first day of November, when a high of 69 is expected, with a temperature at or above 70 expected for southern York County, he said.

Autumn temperatures are expected to return at the weekend, with a high of 60 expected for Saturday and 54 for Sunday.

"Temperatures will be real comfortable for late October," Coyle said. "It'll be a nice taste of late summer."
