The rain that was expected 'before' midnight, had a slight delay, and began with the ringing in of the New Year. Tuesday will be warmer in the morning and cooler in the afternoon with wet weather all day long.
Expect a high of 55 degrees for the first morning of the New Year, but temperatures slip into the 40s during the afternoon hours. Winds will mainly push from the north at 10-15 mph, along with all the rain.
Track the storms in your neighborhood with the Interactive Radar, and if you're headed into the office despite the holiday, the mobile radar on the First Alert Weather App will keep you informed with showers in the area.
For Tuesday night we'll still have some showers, particularly for the eastern and southeastern portions of the state. Winds will shift slightly and change out of the NNW 5-10 mph. The cold begins to step in as the cold front pushes out the warm air we've enjoyed for the majority of late 2012. Brace yourself for much colder mornings in the next few days.
The extended 10 day forecast will show you when to expect warmer temperatures.
We start off with plenty of clouds and limited access to any kind of warmth from the sun Wednesday morning. Temperatures will only climb into the mid 40s for the afternoon highs. Winds will push from the NW 10-15 mph, and we'll have fast dwindling chances of rain in the morning, drying out totally at night.
During Wednesday's evening hours, we'll drop to near or below freezing temperatures throughout the entire state, and we'll stay there at least for the morning hours for the next several days.
