Quiet and cloudy Thursday; keeping an eye on New Year's snow

NOW: Quiet and cloudy Thursday; keeping an eye on New Year’s snow

Few flurries this morning, but it shouldn’t slow you down much as you head out the door. Be cautious that there could be a few slick spots.

Otherwise today is quiet and cloudy with similar temperatures to yesterday.

Tomorrow is warmer for the final day of the year; we’ll climb to the upper 40s.

As you get ready to ring in the New Year, be ready for some rain showers that start around midnight. Rain showers continue into Saturday, then eventually turn to snow showers by Saturday afternoon.

We will likely pick up measurable snow on Saturday evening / overnight, which could impact New Year’s Day travel. Periods of some heavier snow is possible overnight. How much snow we get depends on temperatures that day, as well as the time of the transition from rain to snow.

Snow showers continue into Sunday morning, then we are dry Sunday afternoon and into the start of the work week.

It will get noticeably cooler the second half of the weekend. Saturday overnight we fall to 19 degrees, and Sunday warms to just 25. The coolest air moves in Sunday overnight / Monday morning, with a low around 10 degrees.

Today: Cloudy. High 38.

Tonight: Mostly cloudy. Low 33.

Friday (New Year's Eve): Cloudy and milder. Rain arrives late. High 48.

Saturday (New Year's Day): Rain/snow, changing to all snow by the afternoon. High 38.

Sunday: Snow ends in the morning, then cold and breezy. High 25.
