Rainy Election Day in Westchase's Forecast

Tuesday’s weather is looking wet, but things should clear up by Wednesday.

Westchase voters are going to want to bring more than their photo IDs to the polls Tuesday.

According to the National Weather Service’s Ruskin office, an umbrella might also be in order.

“It looks like we may get a little bit more rain and even a few (more) thunderstorms than we originally thought,” said meteorologist Tom Dougherty. “Fortunately, it shouldn’t be windy or cold.”

Dougherty said there’s a 20 percent chance of rain tonight (Monday) in the Westchase area. Chances rise to between 60 and 70 percent tomorrow as voters head to the polls to make their decisions for local, state and national offices, including president.

While Tuesday looks like it’s going to be wet, Dougherty says it will start to clear out on Wednesday and into the latter part of the week.

“After this front blows through, things are looking a little bit cooler.”

Expect highs in the 70s throughout much of the week and lows between the upper 40s and low 50s.
