SYRACUSE, N.Y. (NCC News) — Many people are heading outside and to the polls this Election Day. The weather seems nice when people look at the temperature, but the wind is making a huge difference in what voters are feeling when they step out of their houses.
The sun is hiding behind the clouds, making it a dreary day. The wind is decreasing as the day goes on, but the miles per hour will stay in the double digits throughout voting hours. Throughout the day, the weather is in the 50’s but will be decreasing quickly once the sun sets at 4:49 p.m.
Voters should wear a light jacket and pants. A long winter-jacket is not needed, but a lightweight short one would keep people warm but not too warm. A scarf would be smart to bring, especially if there is a line outside of the polling place. The unexposed parts of people’s bodies will be feeling the wind.
