By midday, a few showers or areas of light rain and drizzle will start to blow on shore. Despite the clouds and a few showers, temperatures will climb into the upper 50s to near 60.

A series of slow moving storm systems will then impact the region from Friday through the weekend and into early next week. These systems will result in several rounds of rain and unseasonably mild weather at times. While rain will not fall all day every day, the risk of wet weather will stick around through the New Year.

Friday will see the first round of significant rain with steady rain at times through the day. An isolated thunderstorm or two will be possible as well. Despite the rain and clouds, temperatures will soar to 70° during the afternoon.

Steady rain will take a break through the weekend, but showers will be possible from time to time. Rain chances range from 30% on Saturday to 40% on Sunday. The mild weather will stick around through the weekend with daytime temperatures in the 60s to near 70 and overnight temperatures only in the upper 50s and lower 60s.

Another round of more significant rain will be possible through the day on New Year’s Eve and showers will likely linger at times through midnight. Midnight temperatures will remain mild, in the lower 60s.

New Year’s Day will feature a lingering risk of rain at times along with another round of unseasonably warm temperatures near 70°.
