Two weather-related problem areas may affect voter turnout tomorrow due to increased chances of rain and/or snow. The first will be a large area of rain and rain showers across much of the Western U.S. as the Pacific storm system currently moving into coastal sections of Oregon and Washington moves into the northern Rockies. The exception to the wet weather will be the Southwest where conditions will remain mild and dry. Mountain snow will also be likely across the northern Cascades of Washington where snow levels will lower to around 4000 feet and the usual higher elevations of the Northern and Central Rockies. Ahead of this storm system it will be warm and dry with windy conditions expected across the Southern and Central Plains.
The second area of disturbed weather will occur off along the North Carolina and Virginia coasts as an area of low pressure strengthens just off the coast. Heavy rain is likely along the immediate coast with the potential for high tides and rough surf from North Carolina northward along the coasts of Maryland and Delaware.
