70 degrees and staying a little bit above average at the end of the wet next week the next chance for some showers come on friday, so if that front was to slip in here on sunday temperatures would be in the 60's but it should stay just far enough to the north that we get a surge of warmth here the second half of the weekend. >> and we eke out a nice halloween. >> yes. >> that too. awesome adam. thank you. in just a few short hours the dover police department will hold its first ever save trick-or-treat event from 6:00 to 7:30 this evening families are welcome to bring their kids to collect goodies on the streets surrounding legislative mall in dover. police cars local businesses and more will have spaces set aside just for trick-or-treating and there will be a halloween parade and costume contest at that event as well. lots of fun. >> good community event there. speaking of halloween we've got some free fun and treats for the holidays coming up next in freebie friday.
