A few showers start election day

Good Tuesday and happy election day. Our big day is kicking off with a weak cold front rolling into the state, bringing a few showers with it. This boundary is the first of several systems we are tracking over the next few weeks, with a few of them possibly bringing some winter weather.

Today’s big day is kicking off with a few showers working across the state, but this won’t last all day. Much of it should be gone by early this afternoon. Here are your election day weather trackers:

Wednesday continues to look like a great day as temps head toward 60.

Things change quickly Thursday as rain moves in here ahead of the next cold front. That front will have a wave of low pressure along it, bringing fairly widespread rain with it. Temps will then crash from north to south late Thursday with a few flakes of snow showing up for some:

That sets the stage for a frigid Friday as temps start in the low and middle 20s for many, with some upper teens possible in the cold valleys. Wind chills will also be way down there:

High temps may not get out of the 30s for many on Friday.

There’s a sneaky upper level system showing up in our northwesterly flow and this could bring additional flakes in here Friday night or Saturday morning. Here’s the upper level disturbance I’m talking about:

This brings us to our arctic front arriving late Sunday into Monday. This may have a band of showers ahead of it, but much of the precipitation looks to happen in the cold air behind it:

That could be a band of light accumulating snow for some areas:

That could even open up the lakes to add a few flakes into the arctic winds. The temps look brutal for this time of year. Highs from Monday through Wednesday may not get above the freezing mark. Lows by Tuesday and Wednesday mornings may approach record lows and reach the low and middle teens.

Gusty winds would make it feel much colder:

Have a good Tuesday and take care.
