Tracking sunny, mild conditions for Election Day….After a chilly start to our work week, we’re tracking milder weather over the next couple of days.

But first, as we move through our Monday evening, expect mostly clear skies. We could see a few patchy areas of fog here and there late tonight into early Tuesday morning.  Low temperatures will drop into the upper 30s and lower 40s. Winds will blow in from the north between 5 and 10 mph.

On Election Day, it’s going to be a chilly early in the morning. In fact, morning temperatures will be in the 30s and 40s. So, grab a jacket or sweater before heading out to the polls to vote. However, as we move through the day, our temperatures will gradually climb into the mid 60s under mostly sunny skies.

By Wednesday, we’ll see a mix of sun and clouds with highs in the mid 60s. A cold front will bring a chance for scattered showers Wednesday afternoon and evening. Most of the rain should clear the coast by late Wednesday night. Then, on Thursday, after a few morning clouds, we’ll see sunshine and highs in the upper 50s.  Temperatures will warm back into the mid 60s for Veterans Day.
