Praying for rain in New Jersey?

From NBC's Harry Enten

Last week, breaking down New Jersey's GOP gubernatorial primary, the Cook Political Report's Jennifer Duffy told First Read that former Bogota Steve Lonegan was "praying for rain" on Election Day. According to Duffy, "the lower the turnout, the better [Lonegan] does."

While skies are currently clear throughout New Jersey, the National Weather Service forecasts that all parts of the state have at least a 30% chance of seeing a thunderstorm later this afternoon.

Could rain and lower turnout today help Lonegan overcome his deficit in the polls to former U.S. Attorney Chris Christie?
