Election Day Forecast: Cold and Damp, Possible Snow Showers

November 06, 2018 08:09 AM

Voters heading out to the polls Tuesday might want to grab a warm jacket and an umbrella.

Chief Morning Meteorologist Ken Barlow said metro area residents will see a mix of weather Tuesday, with most of the changes in the morning.


Barlow said rain could change over to snow showers later Tuesday morning. He added winds will increase and temperatures will drop into the mid- to upper-30s.

Barlow advised drivers to watch out for potential slick spots on roads.

Meanwhile, KSTP Traffic Reporter Josie Smith said to expect a slower-than-normal morning commute Tuesday.

Looking ahead, Barlow said while there aren't any big snowstorms headed toward the state, some small snow accumulations are possible during the rest of the week.
