Evening Update: Election Day Showers

“Rain, rain, go away” is what all of us were singing today as we headed to the polls. On this election day, the showers were abundant and lasted well into the afternoon. A severe thunderstorm warning and a flood warning were issued for our area due to the rapid and heavy rains. There were periods of patchy fog and wind gusts with a high temperature of 66 degrees.


Tonight the rain will subside and the sky will be mostly clear as a high pressure system begins to form over the area. Temperatures will drop, with a low of 47. It’s going to be a chilly evening, so stay bundled up! Winds will come from the west at about 7 miles per hour.

Tomorrow (Wednesday): 

The sun will come out tomorrow, for perhaps the first time this week. Despite the high pressure system, some clouds will remain but overall conditons will be mostly sunny with a high of 63 degrees. Winds will come from the west and shift to come from the southwest later in the afternoon. We can expect a very slight chance for some sprinkles in the afternoon.

Little to no rain expected tomorrow (via the Weather Prediction Center)

A Look Ahead:

The high pressure system will continue into Thursday. We can expect dry weather and similar conditions to Wednesday, with some chance for showers in the evening.
