FINAL DAYS OF 2014:
The system that brought us clouds and persistent rain showers over the weekend will slowly depart today. However, low clouds and drizzle may be hard to clear away. We will stay mainly cloudy and chilly today until drier air works in tonight. Highs will reach near the average high of 45° today but drop into the chillier upper 20s tonight. Sunshine returns for Tuesday with highs in the low to mid 40s.
NEW YEAR’S EVE AND DAY:
Sprawling high pressure will keep lots of sunshine around for New Year’s Eve Day (Wednesday) but a chilly north wind will keep daytime highs only in the mid to upper 30s. If you plan to head out for any late night celebrations, it will be quite cold with lows from the upper teens to low 20s New Year’s Eve night. A more southerly wind flow with sunshine will help temperatures warm into the low 40s for New Year’s Day (Thursday).
FIRST WEEKEND OF 2015:
An extended trough of low pressure in the Gulf will send moisture our way early Friday morning. With temperatures below freezing, we could see a period of freezing rain, sleet or snow changing to rain as we rise above freezing. Rain chances look good Friday, Saturday and early Sunday as highs warm into the low 50s.
