NEW YEAR’S EVE AND NEW YEAR’S DAY

After a gusty day, winds should fade through the late evening but will pick back up again Saturday. The difference will be wind direction out of the south instead of the north.

With our next system approaching, sunshine diminishes as the day wears on.  No matternewyearseve_evening-forecast what unique New Year’s Eve drop you attend, most of the New Year celebrations should be good to go, aside from a few light snow showers late evening and overnight as a weak front moves through.
