EVENING: Increasing clouds and mild. Temps in the 40s.
TONIGHT: Showers developing, especially south of the Turnpike. Low 42.
THURSDAY: Cloudy with scattered light showers. High 54.
Today’s high of 52 combined with the next two days warming into the 50s will likely put this month as the 3rd warmest December on record. We stay above freezing (in the 40s) for the next nights so there is no concern for any type of ice forming.
Showers will be returning tonight, especially south of the Turnpike. Cloudy skies with occasional light showers are expected throughout the day Thursday. Total rainfall for Thursday will be less than 0.2″ for most areas.
New Year’s Eve will be dry and we could also see some sunshine which will warm us into the mid 50s! WE stay unseasonably mild for any Friday evening plans.
The next soaking rain is poised to arrive New Years Day morning. Periods of rain will continue through the afternoon before rain tapers off to just a few showers Saturday night and Sunday. By late-Sunday, a powerful front will cross, dropping temperatures into the mid-20s by Monday morning. Highs early next week will be in the upper 30s to near 40 degrees, but dry weather will return.
