Do you have plans for New Year's? We will stay dry through the day with high's in the 40's. For today, partly cloudy skies with high's, average, in the mid 40's. We started cloudy (with the system to the north) but will gradually thin out by this afternoon. For those planning to go out tonight, dress warm. Temperatures overnight will be in the 30's with partly cloudy skies.
Looking at the latest surface map, a high to the south will keep things dry the next couple of days before rain moves in late work week. With the next system, expect temperatures to increase into the low 60's by Friday before a cold front sweeps through drying things out and cooling temperatures off.
Model guidance shows showers to arrive by Thursday early afternoon and continue into Friday before moving out early Saturday. Unlike our last system, showers won't be as heavy this time around. Some rumbles of thunder and gusty winds aren't out of the discussion, but the severe threat is very low.
That wraps up the last forecast of 2019 but have a great day and wonderful start to the new year!
