Election Morning 11/6 Forecast: A Slight Change, But Otherwise Still Dry

TODAY/TONIGHT: Highs will be in the low 50’s for us here today, and I do have us dry. For tonight, that’s where I’m changing the forecast slightly. I am putting in a slight chance of rain with a quick disturbance. It’s a very low chance. Lows will be around 33.

WEDNESDAY/THURSDAY: Another storm heads up the east coast in the next 2 days. I want to make one thing perfectly clear for my East Coast readers. This is NOT on the same scale as Sandy as it isn’t going to be nearly as strong, but it’s something we know you just DO NOT need for the recovery efforts, emotionally or physically. Sandy did so much damage that this storm will be able to add insult to injury. Along the coast this will be a heavy rain/wind event…while inland you might get some more snow in the mountains of PA and West Virginia! Highs end up in the 40’s tomorrow, with the aforementioned slight chance of rain especially early. Thursday we may reach the low 50’s after lows in the low 30’s, but I think that’s it. Honestly, I’d take some action here in Cincinnati, if it meant the east coast got a break. To any readers over there, it is the hope of all of us at NKY Weather to see you recover ASAP.

FRIDAY/SATURDAY: Now, here’s where I’m kinda perplexed. Some of the teleconnection data suggests that we’ll be colder…but model guidance wants to send us to the 60’s. I’m not buying either extreme just yet. I’ll stick with middle or upper 50’s under dry skies.

SUNDAY/MONDAY: The next storm dives in. We’ll have to see what it has to work with, but it’s a potential big weather maker here. Finally, though, I think THIS could push us to the 60’s.

A REQUEST TO OUR READERS: I am not going to mince words: The Red Cross needs a lot of help. They deal with a lot of disasters, but Sandy was a once in a lifetime event for the northeast…and the damage is extensive. They need help to get the residents of NY, NJ, PA, MD, DE, and CT back on their feet. I encourage you, please go to redcross.org and make a donation, or text “SANDY” to 90999 and a $10 donation will be added to your phone bill. Also, a Sunday post I wrote has information about donating to Matthew 25 Ministries if you want to send actual supplies to the coast, or starting tomorrow, volunteer to organize supplies. Let’s get the northeast back on their feet.

NEXT UPDATE: Our next update will be tomorrow morning. Until then, take care and go vote!



Election Day National Forecast: Where Will the Issues Be?

As everyone knows, tomorrow is a big day nationally. We elect 33 Senators, all of the House of Representatives, and the President, along with too many other races to list nationally. So, let’s look at the weather, and where it MIGHT affect the vote:

MIDWEST: Some scattered rain or snow around the upper Midwest may hamper things a bit. Should not be a major deal, but the walk to the polls may be a bit damp.

NORTHWEST: Seattle and Portland might be a bit wet too…however, the states of Washington and Oregon both vote by mail. Voters are able to drop off their completed ballot at designated locations or at county boards of elections, as well. That should limit the impact on the voting process.

EAST: The Nor’easter we’ve talked about for several days will take shape off the southeast coast. For most, this shouldn’t be an issue but if you live along the coast of Georgia, the Carolinas, and VA, you might see some rain especially later in the day into the early evening. Florida will see some storms, as well.

Elsewhere, things will be fine. Regardless of where you live, I am not going to tell you WHO to vote for. Just go vote. It’s a constitutional right and a civic duty. Take care everybody.
