Chilly temperatures, gusty North winds, and sunny skies are ahead for your New Years Day. Valley areas have dipped into the high 20's to high 30's overnight, and mountain areas are mostly in the teens to low 20's. Afternoon high temperatures are projected to be in the low to mid 50's in the valley, and in the low 20's to mid 30's in the mountains. Winds will be out of the North from 10 to 15mph in the valley, with gusts up to around 25mph. Higher elevations are expecting winds up to 20mph out of the East, with gusts to 35mph. Frost will be a concern for residents in the mid valley, but strong North winds are keeping those conditions in check compared to 24 hours ago.
Dry weather is expected to persist through most of the weekend, but increasing clouds will leave the region with milder overnight low temperatures. Clouds will increase on Sunday, and the potential for showers will arrive on Sunday night. Some models are calling for a chance of mountain showers as early as Saturday night, but Sunday night looks like a more promising time for the wet weather to arrive. Wet weather is then expected to linger through most of next week. High temperatures are not expected to change much over the next 7 days, but low temperatures will be around 5 to 15 degrees warmer than this morning. I hope everyone had a happy and safe New Year!
