It's been a brisk and breezy afternoon but the winds will diminish later tonight setting us up for a cold overnight. After a cool start to the work week milder air moves in for election day.
Highs this afternoon did make it into the lower 50s but with a gusty northerly wind it has felt a bit chilly out at times. Winds will relax tonight and skies will begin to clear, which means temperatures will fall quickly after sunset. Lows tonight will fall back into the lower to middle 20s.
High pressure remains in control, extending our dry weather stretch into early next week. We've got a lot of sunshine on tap for Monday, but cooler than normal temperatures remain in place. However, we do have milder temperatures on the way for Election Day with highs climbing to near 60 as high pressure moves southeast. We've got two cold fronts moving through Wednesday and Saturday, but with minimal precipitation.
