ELECTION DAY TUESDAY: High pressure will sneak over the region in time for the 2019 Election. Expect a mix of sun and clouds with highs near 70°. A quick shower or two can’t be ruled out west of I-55, but most of the region will remain dry with no weather woes to slow anyone down from getting to the polls. Skies will clear overnight as lows drop into the 40s to lower 50s.
WEDNESDAY: Transient high pressure will edge east through the day – generally, a nice weather day still to be expected through mid-week. Expect highs to top out in the lower to middle 70s amid mostly to partly sunny skies.
EXTENDED FORECAST: Expect chances for showers and storms to increase for Thursday as another cold front sweeps through. In its wake, highs on Friday will struggle to warm into the 50s as the rain exits to the south and east. Expect cooler than normal highs through the weekend as sunshine likely will prevail next Saturday and Sunday.
