New Year's Eve forecast and a chance of wintry weather Thursday night [VIDEO]

Wrapping up 2014 with a brief look at temps and precip for the past year, the discussing COLD conditions for your New Year's Eve and New Year's Day as well as an overrunning precipitation event on Thursday night that could mean a chance of wintry weather for a short period.

Bottom line

Very cold conditions expected through Thursday with Arctic high pressure in control. Wind chills in the teens are expected overnight and in the 20s all day tomorrow. New Year's Eve festivities tomorrow will require a heavy coat as temps drop back into the 20s.

Precipitation ahead of our next system breaks out Thursday late afternoon or evening as light rain, possibly mixed with a bit of sleet for a few hours until the atmosphere moistens up. All rain expected after midnight (early Friday) and continuing, periodically heavy, through Saturday with temps remaining above freezing. Thunderstorms are also possible Saturday depending on the track of low pressure.

Thanks so much to all of our followers and friends for a phenomenal 2014! We can't adequately express our gratitude through a blog, but know that your amazing support is what will keep us going into what should be a fantastic 2015!
