Superman may battle some thunderstorms if he is out late trick or treating.

The National Weather Service predicts some light rain beginning at 10 p.m., with heavier storms moving into Selma shortly after.

Meteorologist Jody Aaron said severe weather should stay north of Selma, but moderate to strong winds will be present throughout the day Thursday.

Aaron said winds would get up to 20 miles per hour during the day and storms may bring stronger winds

“The earlier the better for trick or treating,” he said. “Most trick or treating should be finished by the time rain starts. Once it starts raining it will rain for quite a bit of time.”

Aaron said weather could become more severe as the storm system moves toward Selma.

Temperatures are expected to be in the 70s during peak trick or treating time.
