Voters out on Election Day across southern IL likely didn\'t vote a chilly rain into the region, yet when it comes to the weather, Mother Nature\'s the only vote that counts. And while the rains weren\'t welcoming the high turnout at the polls, the dry conditions in the region certainly needed the break. Rain gauges across the region measured anywhere from half-inch to 1-inch of rain starting in the morning hours on Tuesday and going through the evening.
This storm system, while not amped with severe weather, will bring a slow, but steady drop in temperatures to the region with highs struggling to get out of the 40s by the weekend.
