Election Day Weather

November 6, 2012, 6:26 PM by Scot Mundt

Election Day Weather
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

While the signs swayed in the breeze on this Election Day, the weather couldn't sway voters not to go out and vote.  The wind still gave a chill on this autumn day, but it wasn't anywhere near to one of the coldest Election Days.

Since 1950, Sioux Falls has an average high of 49 degrees.  The coldest high temperature Sioux Falls had on Election Day was 31 degrees.  It happened twice, in 1990 and 2000.

The interesting thing about Election Day in 2000 is it was not only one of the coolest Election Days, but also one of the wettest.  That day also gave Sioux Falls three inches of snow. 

Getting snow on Election Day is a rarity as it's only snowed five times since 1950 for a total of five and a half inches.

Getting moisture of any kind in KELOLAND is still something many people would vote for.
