Those clear skies hang around tonight dropping temperatures back into the lower 30s.

Most of the rain arrives on Saturday which is New Year’s Eve. Expect rain throughout much of the day. Hopefully, we’ll start to dry out just in time for the new year. A few showers linger overnight into New Year’s Day.
