Election 2016: Low humidity to boost California voter turnout; Cool weather to increase turnout in New Jersey

The next round of primary elections will take place on June 7 with six states heading to the polls.

New Jersey, California, New Mexico, Montana and South Dakota will hold primaries throughout the day. North Dakota will hold a Democratic caucus.

While dry weather is in store for most of New Jersey, a shower or two can't be ruled out for northern parts of the state. Highs will be in the mid-70s F, according to AccuWeather Meteorologist Evan Duffey.

Based on past weather and voting trends, lower temperatures as forecast for the primary are proportional to a higher voting turnout for the state, according to AccuWeather Business Intelligence Analyst Tim Loftus. The research Loftus conducted utilized voting data from L2.

On the West Coast, California will remain seasonable and quiet for the primary.

Highs are expected to hover in the 60s near Los Angeles and San Francisco.

Spanning the state inland, however, heat will persist. Highs in the 80s, 90s and 100s are in store for interior areas.

According to Loftus, past trends indicate that the expected lack of humidity is favorable for voters in the state.

In New Mexico, temperatures are forecast to range from the 70s to the 90s.

In Santa Fe and other northern, mountainous areas of the state, temperatures will rise into the 80s. Thunderstorms are possible in the region.

The southern deserts will be the hottest, with isolated storms.

Montana will experience humid weather with temperatures in the 80s and the chance for scattered showers. Storms may erupt across the western part of the state, including in Helena, during voting hours.

Temperatures will reach into the 90s in the eastern part of the state.

Storms in both North and South Dakota are possible, but mostly dry conditions are expected. Temperatures will range in the middle to high 80s from Sioux Falls, South Dakota, to Bismarck, North Dakota.

Voters in the northernmost corner of North Dakota will see temperatures in the 70s, right around average for this time of year.
