Quiet Weather Expected For Election Day 2012
November 5, 2012
UPDATED By WeatherBug Sr. Meteorologist, James West
For Election Day, all eyes along the East Coast will be on a potentially developing coastal storm that could affect the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast by mid-week. For Tuesday itself though, the trouble spots will be the Great Lakes, Southeast , and Pacific Northwest.
A developing coastal low will start to push off the Southeastern coast Tuesday, bringing scattered showers from the Carolina to central Florida. Temperatures will be a little on the cool side as well from Alabama northward to Virginia, with highs mainly in the 50s and 60s. Temperatures will warm up into the 70s and 80s from Orlando to Miami.
Across the western Great Lakes, and Upper Midwest, there will be some chilly rain showers falling throughout the day. Early on Tuesday morning, there could even be a little wintry mix in northern Minnesota. Otherwise, just a rather cool, damp day is expected, with highs in the 40s and 50s.
The only other polling problem could be the Pacific Northwest, which will see scattered showers with highs generally in the 40s and 50s as well.
Elsewhere, the weather should cooperate for the candidates. Sunshine will stretch from California to the Central Plains, with highs in the 70s and 80s from Los Angeles to Wichita, Kan. The Great Basin will be sunny too, with pleasant highs generally in the 60s.
The Northeast will be sunny but chilly. Highs will only warm into the mid-40s from New York City to Boston. Interior New England will be sunny as well, with highs in the 30s. Don`t forget to vote!
