Thursday has trended drier with recent guidance so we’ve dropped precipitation chances to 30% for the time being. Any precipitation would be rain or snow.

We head into the new year with a mainly dry New Years Eve, but a large and powerful low pressure should arrive for Saturday bringing unseasonably mild weather and rain. Highs could climb into the mid 50s in some spots, but for now we’re calling for a high of 50. Sunday the storm moves east and the transition back to winter comes with a sharp temperature drop Sunday morning as the cold front moves in. Rain and snow is possible. Temps overnight into Monday morning will drop into the teens.
