DETROIT (WWJ) - This forecast for Halloween is enough to make anyone scared. 

The National Weather Service says the Detroit area could see its first measurable snowfall of the season on Thursday night. 

Forecasters say the day will start with on-and-off showers before a break in the rain during the late afternoon. Winds will then increase with gusts possibly reaching 35 to 45 miles per hour. 

By the evening, the rain will pick up again and wind chill readings in the metro area will be around 38 degrees. 

As the temperature drops, rain will turn into wet snow -- which is expected to overspread the area after 7 p.m.

When all is said and done, forecasters say we could see about a half-inch of snow coating the ground.
