Temperatures will cool quickly during the pre-dawn hours of Tuesday under clear skies with lows falling to the upper 30s to low 40s.

And set your Election Day alarms extra early for Tuesday if you want to catch a total lunar eclipse. Totality will last nearly 1 1/2 hours — from 5:16 a.m. to 6:41 a.m. EST — as Earth passes directly between the moon and sun. More info.
