DETROIT (AP) - If and when a front of rainy weather hits Michigan could help decide which party does best in Tuesday’s election.

Rain can cut into turnout, and higher turnouts generally favor Democrats over Republicans.

The National Weather Service says there’s a 50 percent chance of rain Tuesday in populous metropolitan Detroit and in the Bay City-Flint-Midland-Saginaw area, with highs in the mid-50s to about 60.

Rain is likely in the rest of southern lower Michigan. The weather service puts the chance of rain at 60 percent for Battle Creek, Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo, Lansing and Muskegon with highs in the 50s.

Northern lower Michigan and the eastern Upper Peninsula also can expect rain Tuesday, with rain possible elsewhere in the U.P. Temperatures up north should be in the 40s to lower 50s.
