Good Tuesday and welcome to Election Day 2012. Voters are heading to the polls today across the country and the weather sometimes plays a role in turnout. If that’s the case, you have no excuse not to get out and vote today in Kentucky.
We will see a mix of sun and clouds today with only a small threat for a shower across the far south. Temps will range from the upper 40s to low 50s for most areas. Let’s track our Election Day weather:
A fast moving system will dive in here from the northwest late tonight into Wednesday. Clouds and scattered showers will increase during this time and I can’t rule out a wet flake across the mountains. Temps Wednesday will be very chilly with low and mid 40s.
This system will slowly pull away by Thursday and that will allow for a major warm up in time for the weekend. Temps will head into the 60s and we could hit 70 degrees with gusty southwesterly winds blowing.
A strong storm system will be winding up across the plains this weekend and will feature a major temp contrast. Take a look at the temp anomaly map from the GFS Ensembles for Sunday:
Showers and thunderstorms should roll in here on Monday as storm works eastward and drags a cold front through the region. Much colder air will filter in as the front passes.
Have a great Election Day and take care.
