Daily Weather Briefing for Tuesday, November 5, 2019
Polls Open at 6:30am and Close at 7:30pm






Outlook

Weak high pressure will linger over the region today before strengthening on Wednesday. High pressure will then give way to a sharp cold frontal passage Thursday night setting us up for a dry and chilly start to the holiday weekend.

Today is Election Day

The only opportunity to see and hear the candidates speak occurred at a forum held Saturday at Altered Frequencies, video of which is below. More information about the event and candidates can be seen online. [LINK]



The polls open today at 6:30am and close at 7:30pm. Voters in Franklin may vote in the lower level of the town hall located at 95 East Main Street and voters in Highlands may vote in the Highlands Civic Center.
