Starting off New Year’s Eve temperatures will be in the upper 30s and low 40s, but by the afternoon highs will read in the 50s. Rain showers will also be with us to begin the last day of the year. We will see showers start to work in as early as Friday night. Widespread rain is expected on Saturday as a front moves through. Sunday morning spotty showers will be around, but drier conditions build in. We could even see some sunshine by Sunday afternoon. This is a rain only precipitation event because temperatures will stay well-above freezing. So for New Year’s Eve festivities have the rain gear ready to go!
