Good Saturday Morning, 

It is a chilly start this morning with temperatures starting out in the 20s in many areas.  The mild, dry weather continues today as temperatures rise into the mid and upper 40s under mostly sunny skies.  Clouds will increase Saturday night as a weak front approaches the region.  There is the chance for a few rain showers late at night into the first half of Sunday but should be on the light side and somewhat scattered in coverage.  After the possible raindrops, some clearing is possible late Sunday afternoon into the evening.  Highs on Sunday will once again run above normal topping out in the mid 40s.  The average high for this time of year is around 36 degrees. 

Right now next week looks pretty quiet as we finish the year and head towards New Year’s Eve.  Temperatures will start to cool down on Monday and by Tuesday may not reach the melting mark.  On New Year’s Eve Day, a front crosses and reinforces the chilly air in place.  New Year’s Eve itself looks dry but cold with temperatures falling through the middle and then lower 20s during the evening hours.  Wind speeds at this point look fairly light.

It looks bright and breezy for New Year’s Day but it will also be cold with highs only in the low 30s.
