When Metro Detroiters head to the polls Tuesday, they'll likely be dodging rain and puddles, according to an Election Day forecast.

The National Weather Service says showers, mainly between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. on  Nov. 6 with a high near 58, about 5 degrees above average for the date. Lows should be in the 40s.

November has already started off cool and wet.

Detroit Metro Airport recorded nearly an inch of rain through Thursday night. More precipitation was expected overnight, with totals topping 1.5 inches in some parts of southeast Michigan by late Friday, the weather service reported.

Conditions are expected to clear by Saturday, when the mercury could reach the upper 40s under mostly sunny skies.

Sunday also should be partly cloudy through evening, when another chance of showers is on tap.

More rain could arrive late Monday as the mercury climbs into the mid-50s, according to the National Weather Service.
