ElectionCast: Storms May Soak Va. Voters

Democratic Virginia Primary, Tuesday, June 9, 2009
65-70F 85-89F Muggy, Scattered Storms 50%
It's looking like a sticky day, and at times stormy one for Virginia voters. Temperatures will rise well into the 80s courtesy tropical air flow from the south (except in the mountains, where temperatures will max out in the low 80s). A cold front will likely set off periods of thunderstorms -- a few of which could be intense.

A round of early morning thunderstorms will get the day off to a rocky start, particularly in the D.C. metro area. More storms may fire up later. In the western part of the state, these storms should be more isolated, developing between noon and 3 p.m before advancing towards the eastern sections by evening. Voters will have the best chance of avoiding rain from the mid-morning to mid-afternoon (although a few isolated storms may even pop then, especially west). Confidence: Medium-High

My understanding is that VORTEX2 runs through June 13. We have a feature on VORTEX2 later today (Monday).

The robo-calls have been SOOO annoying...I'm probably voting for the candidate who's been bothering me least, Creigh Deeds...don't know why they're holding a Lt. Governor primary; in Virginia, the Lieutenant Governor generally does little more than occupy an office in the Capitol in Richmond...
