  • Weak front moves through this evening
  • Subtle cool down Tuesday and Wednesday
  • New Year’s Eve/Day looks soggy


A weak front will push through the area this evening. A brief showers or wintry mix is possible at elevations above 3500 feet as the front moves through. Overnight lows in the 20s and lower 30s.


We’ll see more sunshine Tuesday with just a few clouds rolling through with cooler afternoon temperatures. Highs look to reach the mid 40s.


Wednesday looks to be a repeat of Tuesday with more clouds expected. That’s because of our next complex system will be developing. We start the day off with more sunshine, but clouds will be thickening up late in the day.


At this time models are showing another front moving in for New Year’s Eve and lingering into New Year’s Day, adding to an already record-setting soggy year.

The heaviest rain will likely be from later Thursday into Friday morning before slowly tapering off throughout New Year’s Day. Rainfall totals of 1-2″ look likely. Afternoon highs will be in the 50s. Colder air looks to move in behind the cold front.

Saturday and Sunday are looking much quieter as the storm system that will bring us some heavier rain will have exited the region. We should see much more sunshine this weekend with highs in the 40s and 50s.
