Voting Day forecast: icky through the morning; clearing later, cooler

Presidential primary polls will open at 6 a.m. Tuesday in Erie County under a chilly drizzle, but it won't hang around all day.

It's part of a weak cold front passing through the region that will sweep out the streak of unseasonably warm weather that Buffalo Niagara's enjoyed over the last several days, the National Weather Service reported.

The earliest voters Tuesday morning will enter their polling locations through light drizzle and temperatures forecast to be 44 degrees. Light northerly winds will make it feel like it's in the upper 30s, according to weather service forecasts.

Forecasts show the temperature starts picking up about 8 a.m. and will reach 50 degrees by 11 a.m. It will increase through the 50s as the day wears on before toe-touching 60 degrees about 4 p.m., and receding back below 50 degrees by the time the polls close at 9 p.m.

Forecasts show the skies will start out overcast but begin clearing dramatically between noon and 1 p.m.

Here's an hour-by-hour look at what to expect:
