New Years Eve Future-cast

Good Sunday evening, tomorrow is the last day of 2018 and we are going to finish out this crazy year on a cloudy and at times, wet note. And unfortunately for those who have outdoor plans for New Years Eve, the weather could have an impact on festivities.

Water Vapor imagery this evening shows another in the long line of upper level disturbances moving through the state of Texas. This feature is picking up plenty of moisture from the Pacific leading to clouds and wet weather across the Southern tier of the country. Meanwhile SW Atlantic ridging continues to block any fronts from making a clean sweep off the East Coast. What we end up having is another stagnant pattern and with some hybrid cold air damming in place...the recipe is set for a murky end to 2018.

Here's a look at the Futurecast for Monday December 31st, 2018...

A warm front will help push scattered showers into the region overnight and could lead to a wet morning commute wherever your destination takes you.

Shower activity will decrease some by late morning and will transition everything over to light drizzle and mist, especially across he Foothills where some upslope component may help assist along the Hickory Nut Gorge and the South Mountain Chain...
