Dry and mild for Friday, rain for Saturday

Forecast

EVENING: Cloudy and mild with areas of fog. Temps in the 40s.

TONIGHT: Mostly cloudy, areas of fog and mild. Low 43.

NEW YEAR’S EVE: Mix of clouds and sun, mild. High 56.

NEW YEAR’S DAY: Periods of Rain, 0.5-1.0″. High 59.

The air is mild and damp and we are seeing areas of fog developing across the area. Expect the fog to continue overnight into Friday morning with temperatures holding into the 50s.

Friday will see any remaining fog burn of to allow for some sunshine and we once again warm into the 50s for the afternoon. Based on our forecast for the last day of the month, it appears this December will be the 3rd warmest on record! We stay mild and dry through most New Year’s Eve 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. With the cold air crashing in it is possible a period of wet snow develops Sunday night, but confidence is low on that aspect of the forecast at this time. Highs early next week will be in the upper 30s to near 40 degrees, but dry weather will return. Highs could climb to 50°+ by the middle of next week.

A look ahead into January shows that we will see more ups and downs in temperatures. So instead of consistently warming into the 40s and 50s, I would expect more seasonable conditions (Hi 30s/40s, low 20s) with the mild days mixing in at times.
