What to Know

  • Storms will bring rain into the region on New Year's Eve and in the afternoon of New Year's Day, 2021.
  • Expect just rain in most neighborhoods.
  • However, it looks like the rain will take a break just in time for the arrival of 2021 at midnight.

The bad news: If you are out early this evening, you will need an umbrella.

The good news: The weather is likely to clear in time for midnight -- and the beginning of 2021!

Thursday evening started chilly, grey and misty, with some rain. But that rain is expected to clear by midnight.

The break in rain will continue until Friday afternoon, though temperatures will be above freezing, so no snow is expected.

Once the rain starts, it will be steady Friday afternoon and into Friday night. The high will be in the low 40s after dipping into the low 30s early Friday.

Saturday morning, the rain should exit. That day will be nice, with partly sunny skies. Temperatures on Saturday are expected to be unseasonably warm, topping out close to 60 degrees.

Sunday, the rain comes back again, and some people may see snow or a wintry mix early in the day.
