A foggy and showery New Year’s Eve celebration ahead

/ December 31, 2020 at 11:30 AM

It’ll be a warm but overcast night across the area as we flush 2020 and try again in 2021. Temperatures will hold in the mid-60s as the clock turns midnight, owing to the muggy airmass in place. Said muggy airmass will allow fog to develop later this evening as well; some patches of it may become dense, and NWS notes in its discussion that a Dense Fog Advisory could be required.

Watch out for a few scattered showers coming in from off the ocean this evening as well, but the bulk of the activity looks to remain northwest of here as rain continues to fall into the remnants of the cold air damming regime. Depending on where the front ultimately ends up, we could see that enhanced rain risk come a little closer to 17-A, but we’ll keep an eye on it.

Overall, it’s not the worst weather to end 2020 with, especially considering how this year has gone. I wish you all a very Happy New Year!
