If the only factor in determining voter turnout on this Election Day were the weather, southwestern Connecticut's voters should head to the polls in record numbers, according to the National Weather Service.
That's because skies will be sunny, there's not a drop of rain (or snow) in sight and the daytime high temperature should reach the balmy high-60s. Wind will be calm.
A few clouds may move in by tonight, as the temperature falls to a low around 48 degrees.
Tomorrow will be sunny, with a high near 63. Overnight, there is a chance of rain, mainly after midnight, the NWS says. The low temperature will be about 50.
By Thursday, the forecast is murkier with a chance of rain and patchy fog. Skies will be cloudy, with a high near 62 degrees. Rain is also possible Thursday night under cloudy skies with a low temperature around 45.
By Veterans Day on Friday, however, the weather service predicts skies will clear and mostly sunny. It will be breezy, with a high temperature near 53 degrees.
