The rain moves out, but the clouds will stick around until the weekend….As we move through this New Year’s Eve, some of us will have to dodge a few scattered showers for the early part of the evening. But by the time we’re ringing in 2016, the steady rain should be gone for most of us. We’ll hang on to a slight chance of some leftover drizzle. Otherwise, expect mostly cloudy skies. Temperatures around midnight will be in the upper 40s. On New Year’s Day, the clouds will stick around for most of the day. A few folks might be lucky enough to see some sunshine by late afternoon. Highs will be in the lower 50s. We’re expecting plenty of sunshine through the weekend. Highs will cool into the upper 40s on Saturday and into the mid 50s on Sunday. We’ll have highs in the 40s for the start of the work week.
