National Weather Service meteorologists say voters across the Charlotte region won’t have to worry about getting very wet on Election Day, but they will need to bring jackets along.
And leave the sunglasses at home, forecasters add.
A developing coastal storm system is bringing clouds and a chilly breeze into the Charlotte area on Tuesday. A bit of rain is falling across the region Tuesday morning, but meteorologists say the really significant rainfall will be reserved for areas south and east of Charlotte.
“There will be a little bit of rain this morning, but it should be gone by noon,” said Pat Moore, of the National Weather Service office in Greer, S.C. “It’s pretty light.”
Moore said the clouds will hang around for the rest of the day. A combination of clouds and a chilly breeze from the northeast will keep temperatures in the 40s.
At daybreak Tuesday, radar showed light rain falling in scattered locations. Moore said precipitation totals likely will be only one or two hundredths of an inch.
“We need the rain, but it won’t be coming for us today,” he said.
