Quiet Weather for Election DayNovember 1st, 2012 at 12:29 pm by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, Weather
Click on the image to enlarge. This is the weather map (GFS model) for next Tues. AM – Election Day. It’s going to be a quiet day, weatherwise for most of the country. There are no big storms and you can see sprawling high pressure across much of the country. A large majority of the U.S. will see partly to mostly sunny skies, including those areas hit by Hurricane Sandy. Here in Michigan, we may have some early morning frost, but it’ll be partly sunny and cool with fairly light wind. Clouds may increase a bit towards evening. The overall pattern should remain pretty quiet for the next week with temperatures a touch cooler than average. NOTE: A little over half of the areas that have lost power from hurricane Sandy have had power restored, but over 2 1/2 million customers remain without power and some may be out for 10 days or more (obviously along the coast where there was significant storm surge, it will take months to rebuild). Here’s a cool nighttime satellite picture of Hurricane Sandy. You can see the lights of G. Rapids and Kalamazoo.
