Good Morning! Yesterday’s rain arrived right on schedule. Today, more showers are possible this morning and through mid-day. It will be a mild last day of 2022. If you have plans to ring in the New Year this evening, the weather should be dry and mild. The first day of 2023 will be quiet. After some fog in the morning, the sun will come out later. Highs in the lower 70’s is a great way to start the New Year. But, there’s a major storm system in our future next week. Showers and storms will be numerous, particularly Tuesday. Severe weather is a good bet. Rainfall could be excessive. Much cooler air will follow the big storm. Here’s my very brief forecast discussion.
TODAY: Patchy AM fog. Risk of Scattered showers this morning and through about mid-day, before ending. High today near 70. Dry this evening and tonight. Patchy fog late tonight. Low tonight 53.
Future Radar at 11AM shows some leftover scattered showers around. The showers will exit during the early afternoon.

NEXT FEW DAYS: Next week will be rather unsettled from Monday night through Wednesday. Showers and storms will be numerous, particularly Tuesday. Severe weather is a good bet. Rainfall could be excessive. Much cooler air will follow the big storm.
