Back to reality! After starting the day in the 50s temperatures have been taking a nosedive behind the storm system we had Friday. Now - a good fetch of polar air is taking hold underneath the High Pressure airmass moving overhead. Temperatures will fall back into the 20s overnight.
Tomorrow a batch of clouds will sneak in helping to limit surface heating during the day. Highs will feel more seasonable, only topping out around the mid 30s. This cool spell will be short lived. Warmer temps are expected into New Year's Eve as the airmass modifies ahead of our next storm.
This storm will be another soaker for the area, and it's possible we could see another inch of rain. Thankfully this storm will pack less wind. The heaviest amount of rain is going to fall at a less than ideal time, 11pm-3am. Just in time for the drive home from any New Years Eve plans. While temperatures will be rising overnight, ice is not a concern, but with the rain coming down heavy at times, visibility may be a concern. Something to be mindful of.
After the storm moves out early afternoon Tuesday, we stay seasonable and dry heading into the middle part of the week. There is another system pretty close by that passes to our north on Friday, while right now it misses us. It's something to keep an eye on.

NEW YEAR’S EVE: PM rain, possibly continuing into the midnight hour. Highs around 40.
