PM Update: As Voting Winds Down, Rain Increases
More clouds and some rain Wednesday
Mother Nature held the rain off across much of the area through around noon, allowing early-day voters to enjoy a dry (if not lengthy) wait. Along with somewhat humid temperatures in the low 60s, we have seen some drizzle and showers move through the area this afternoon. Additional rain bands are now arriving from the southeast, most of which will be light with occasional moderate bursts. If headed out to vote this afternoon or evening, remember to bring an umbrella!
Tonight: We will stay cloudy with occasional rain overnight. Rainfall rates should generally not be that high, but some more bouts of moderate rain are possible. Look for lows to bottom out in the low 50s just about everywhere. Winds will be light from the northeast. By sunrise, we should see rain totals from today and tonight averaging in the .25"-.50" range, with some places (especially north) receiving less.
Tomorrow: Low pressure off the coast will only slowly move northward on Wednesday. This will translate to more clouds and a continued chance of rain. It looks like much of the area will be on the western edge of the rain shield, and some locations may not see more than a passing shower or two. The further east from D.C. one goes the better chances for any appreciable rain. Highs should reach the low 60s, with mid 60s possible over western sections where some sun may break through.
Additional rainfall on Wednesday should be less than .10" unless the storm drifts further west than anticipated.
