If you still need to get out and vote, Election Day weather will give you the green light. It’s not until the end of the week that our weather pattern takes a major shift.

Election Day

Election Day will begin with some clouds and fog for much of the area—especially inland. By late-morning to lunchtime, the dreary weather will fade away, leaving us with partly cloudy skies and highs in the upper 80s.

Wednesday and Thursday

Wednesday will be almost the same as Tuesday, with partly cloudy skies and a high around 88 degrees.

A stationary front will move into the area on Thursday which will bring a few showers to the region. Overall, rain will not be very widespread or heavy. However, the rain and increased cloud cover should keep temperatures in the low to mid-80s.

Friday’s forecast

By Friday morning, a strong cold front will enter the Coastal Bend. Scattered showers and a few storms are likely with this front, and temperatures will be in the 60s for most of Friday. This cold front won’t clear the skies like it sometimes does, so we’ll be left with the clouds throughout much of Friday and Saturday.
