Looking good, but feeling cold today. The only election weather issue is standing in line in the cold.

This Afternoon:

Highs: Upper 40s | Wind: NE 5


Lows: Mid 30s | Wind: NNE 5-10


Highs: Low to Mid 40s | Wind: N 5-15 and Gusting

High pressure giving us a chilly Election Day.  Temperatures this morning were below freezing and the National Weather Service is declaring and end to the growing season for Washington, D.C. and Baltimore areas.  This was the coldest morning since March 27th.  Lows were in the mid 20s to low 30s across the region. I'll be showing some cold election photos at noon today.  You can tweet me at @JacquiJeras your photos.  Next weather issue is the coastal storm that has been advertised the past few days.  The only thing consistent in the models is that they have been inconsistent.  Latest trending is that we will get a brush from the storm with no major impact.  See latest in house model here. 

RPM Model

Clouds will increase already tonight.  Winds increase tomorrow with a chance of light rain Wednesday afternoon.  Wednesday night may see a mix of light rain and snow. No accumulation is expected.  If the storm tracks slightly to the East, we may see no precipitation at all.  A slightly farther Westerly track, and we will pick up a bit more rain/snow.  Either way, not a big problem here.  That won't be the case for people in the Northeast and New England.  This storm will bring gusty winds, rain and coastal flooding. Winds may reach 40mph or more in NY and NJ.  This could cause additional power outages, especially along the coast.  Snow shouldj stay in the interior areas away from big cities.
