Election Day Forecast

Good morning bloggers,


It’s Election Day!  The US Constitution stated in Amendment XV, which was ratified by the states in 1870: “Section 1. The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of race, color, or previous condition of servitude.”  Get out there and vote today!

The weather looks great over most of the nation so there should be a big turnout today.  Here is a look at the HRRR model valid at 6 PM today:


This model shows a thin band of rain forming and right over KC.  There is a storm over southeast Canada, and snow over the northern plains.   Most of the nation will have a calm day, while here in KC we will see increasing clouds with the chance that this band of rain forms as a fast moving disturbance moves overhead.

And, then we will concentrate on this:



The models came in overnight with a continuation of showing some low accumulations of snow near KC. The two maps above are the GFS model first, then the European model second. These are snowfall totals ending Friday morning.  Both models have around 1/2″ to 2″ of snow in our area. Last night I went with a dusting to 2″.  Let’s see how the models come in today.

Kansas City Weather Timeline:

  • Today:  Increasing clouds with a chance of rain later this afternoon.  High:  51°
  • Wednesday:  Mostly sunny and cooler. High: 45°
  • Thursday:  Increasing clouds, becoming cloudy.  Rain, snow, or a mixture is likely by evening.  The precipitation will change to snow before ending with a dusting to 2″ possible. High:  38°
