Despite plenty of sunshine, temperatures have only risen into the low-and-mid 50s this afternoon and a sometimes gusty north wind is adding an extra chill. As Jason alluded to this morning, it's feeling like the extended warm season of 2010 is finally coming to a close. Sure, we could see a mild day or two in the future, but days like this and nights like the one ahead are a good reminder winter is around the corner.
Through Tonight: Mostly clear and cold. We've seen a lot of wind lately, but tonight will feature calmer conditions which will help radiate out any warmth on the ground and put an end to the growing season for some. Lows reach mainly the upper 20s and lower 30s across the north and west sections, with urban centers and places further southeast falling to the low-and-mid 30s.
Election Day (Tuesday): Another brilliantly sunny day is ahead, and if you don't mind cool temperatures it shouldn't feel too bad when you head to the polls. Highs near 50 and into the lower 50s should do it. Some light breezes will be possible, but it should be more of a break from recent gusts.
Election weather: It's election time, and weather can play a role as CWG's Steve Tracton examined last go around in 2008. But what about this year's weather across the country? Who looks to face the most influence from rain (or snow?) tomorrow? Cliff Mass explores those issues and looks at some of the general wisdom surrounding weather and voting.
