No Cold Air in Sight, Rain for New Year's?

Jason Samenow @ 12:00 AM

Our stretch of above average temperatures continues, now extending to 18 straight days. But for the unfortunate prospect of rain New Year's Eve and New Year's Day, we'll have fair and marginally mild conditions for at least the next five days.


Forecast Confidence: HighPartly sunny, unremarkable. Cool high pressure to our north will be close enough to protect us from the developing storm in the Rockies but far enough away that we won't feel much of its chill. Expect a mix of sun and clouds, with highs near 50. Overnight, it should be mostly clear with lows 27-32 (suburbs-city).


Forecast Confidence: HighSimilar to Friday. Our blocking high to the north will slowly move offshore, but should continue to hold off considerable clouds and any rain. Expect partly cloudy skies, with highs near 50. Overnight, high clouds should increase with lows 32-38 (suburbs-city).

New Year's Eve

Forecast Confidence: Medium-HighClouds increase. Rain late? As the storm system responsible for the snow in the Rockies finally ejects towards the Plains and Upper Midwest, a slug of moist air out ahead of it is likely to encroach on our area. During the day Sunday, expect increasing and thickening clouds, with highs in the upper 40s. At night, rain is possible, especially past about 10pm. Expect temperatures to hold in the 40s.

New Year's Day

Forecast Confidence: Medium-HighMorning rain. Cloudy afternoon. After a bout of morning rain, a cold front should pass through the area, allowing for slow clearing during afternoon. High temperatures should be in the low 50s. Store

Colorado Snow...

If you're a snow lover, you can live vicariously by watching the totals mount up in places like Denver and Boulder -- where more than a foot will probably fall after 2-3 feet last week. Here are a few links to check out:
