Battleground Weather Forecast
While the candidates are scurrying about making their last-minute appeals to the anxious electorate, could the weather also have a vote in the final outcome? As Capital Weather Gang's Steve Tracton discussed last week, weather can indeed play a role in enhancing or suppressing voter turnout. So let's start our weather tour of the battleground landscape ...
Colorado: Dry weather with highs well into the 60s could favor higher turnout in the eastern half of the state, including the population-heavy Denver metro area. But the resort sections of western Colorado, including Aspen, are looking more on the cloudy side with rain and snow showers about.
Florida: The Sunshine State will have no weather excuses this year as its solar mascot will dominate the skies from Tallahassee to Jacksonville and all the way to Miami. The northern two-thirds of the state will be in the 70s and the southern third will be warmer -- in the 80s.
