FINAL DAYS OF 2014:
Low clouds that have hung around all weekend and for most of Monday are finally clearing, paving the way for more sunshine today. We stay chilly though with highs struggling to make the lower 40s and a north to northeast wind. Tonight looks fair but cold with low to mid 20s expected.
NEW YEAR’S EVE AND DAY:
Sprawling high pressure will keep lots of sunshine around for New Year’s Eve Day (Wednesday) but readings will barely get above freezing thanks to a chilly north wind. 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 late Friday, Saturday and early Sunday. Highs climb to near 50 Saturday before colder air moves back in early next week.

NEW YEAR’S EVE DAY:
