    The last day of 2016 will start out cold, but warm to seasonable temps as you prepare to ring in the new year. NBC10 First Alert Weather chief meterologist Glenn "Hurricane" Schwartz has your forecast. (Published Friday, Dec. 30, 2016)

    So what can we expect for the New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day holidays?

    A low that develops in the Great Plains will continue to track across the northern United States and an associated warm front will lead to an increase in clouds on New Year’s Eve.

    But, as the warm front moves in winds will shift south-westerly and that will allow high temps to make it into the mid-40s on NYE and overnight lows will be above freezing.

    There shouldn't be any issues with the NBC10 Fireworks displays at 6 p.m. and midnight. Skies should remain mostly cloudy and conditions mostly dry through the weekend. Catch the Penn's Landing NYE Fireworks Display on NBC10Catch the Penn's Landing NYE Fireworks Display on NBC10
