If you are headed out to vote in the Primary, grab the coat if headed to the polls early. You’ll be able to ditch the coat and trade it in for a light jacket by the afternoon today with highs climbing into the lower 50s. Regardless of what your Saturday plans are, the forecast looks nice for this afternoon. Enjoy it.
