Today’s weather story from the National Weather Service:
New Year to ring in quiet and cold, weekend not so quiet
(December 31, 2014) – 2014 will go out with little overall fanfare, compared to last year as most areas should see little in the way of cloud cover, but below normal temperatures in the upper teens to around 20 for afternoon highs. Winds will begin to increase this afternoon into tonight with temperatures only falling slightly into the middle to upper teens. Wind chills will hover either side of zero so bundle up while celebrating the arrival of the New Year.
Attention remains on the weekend, Saturday and Saturday Night in particular as a system will come together over the Great Lakes and bring a mixed bag of precipitation to the region. As is the case with all systems, the exact track will be key in determining what for the precipitation falls in any one spot and this may change throughout the course of the event as temperatures try to warm above freezing for some locations.
Stay tuned in the coming days for more updates on this developing winter system.
