Weather Week: 2019 Rings In with Some Chilly Weather

As promised, the last weekend of 2018 was a pretty gross one. Highs hovered in the upper 40s and low 50s both Saturday and Sunday with drizzle and overcast skies. This week will offer a little bit of everything from the cold and wet to the sunny and mild. But, what about New Year's Eve?

Truth is, Monday should be just about ideal for ringing in the New Year. First, the drizzle and clouds will continue through the morning hours probably tapering off by lunchtime. While the clouds will probably stick around, the rain should move out and we'll be left with dry, albeit a tad cold, for your New Year's Eve plans. You won't need an umbrella, but you'll likely want a jacket, maybe a coat if you are going to be outside at midnight — it will probably be around 50 degrees as we hit 2019.

New Year's Day looks like a lovely first day of the year with highs in the low to mid 60s under partly cloudy skies. Take advantage as Wednesday and Thursday appear to be somewhat of a repeat of the weekend with gray, cloudy and drizzly conditions both days and highs barely reaching 50 degrees.

However, the first weekend of 2019 looks to be spectacular so far with sunny skies and highs in the 60s so long as the forecast holds. For now, you can look forward to pretty nice weather for the holiday, but you'll want to stay warm even if staying dry doesn't appear to be a problem.
