A Sunny Start to 2020, but It Won’t Last Long

Cloudy conditions for the first part of the night, and the new year should ring in with a cloudy sky. Those clouds will quickly dissipate by sunrise, so temperatures should still manage to drop to near freezing overnight. It’s going to be breezy with wind chills in the upper 20s to around 30 degrees, so bundle up if you have plans to go out.

The first day of 2020 will be decently pleasant. Mostly sunny conditions and warmer temperatures in the upper 40s thanks to a southwest wind, but there might still be a slight chill to the air. Our weather gets active on the second day of the year when clouds return as well as rain. Temperatures in the low 50s. Close to 60 Friday with rain continuing, but snow is possible Friday night and Saturday. However, surface temps should be well above freezing, so we’ll have to monitor future models to see what our impacts might be.




TONIGHT: Cloudy, then decreasing clouds. Low: 33. Wind: W 10 mph.

TOMORROW: Mostly sunny and warmer. High: 48. Wind: SW 10 mph

THURSDAY: Cloudy with afternoon rain; breezy. High: 51. Wind: SW 10-20 mph.
