Simply labeling this Election Day as pleasant would be a vast understatement, falling far short of what was a simply stunning fall day here in the Tri-State. Mother Nature certainly gave little excuse to you non-voters out there; afternoon highs nearing 70° marked our warmest afternoon in nearly two weeks under crystal clear skies and believe it or not, it's about to get even nicer. A core of high pressure making camp over the eastern third of the country will act as a deterrent to any organized weather systems with their sights on the Ohio Valley while setting up a long-lived stream of southerly wind flow expected to keep temperatures at home between 8° and 15° above average between now and early next week!
After reaching 70° on Wednesday before dipping to 68° Thursday afternoon, the mercury is expected to surge through the upcoming weekend. In fact, by the time next Monday rolls around, we could be looking at our warmest weather since October 23rd. During that stretch, it also appears as though rain chances will steer clear of the Tri-State. We'll have to wait until at least next Tuesday before another organized system of rainfall reaches the Tri-State.
