Look for a dry end to the year this week, with a cool, breezy evening to ring in 2015 Wednesday.
The cold temperatures will continue this week, with daytime highs in the 50s and overnight lows in the 30s, and frost, in the valley. The National Weather Service says there is a possibility of a weak weather system movng in Monday night, but that would only bring negligible rainfall in the Sacramento region and three inches of snow in the Sierra. It will clear out by Tuesday morning.
With the rain, “the wind stirs things up,” said Brooke Bingaman, a forecaster with the weather service office in Sacramento. That will bring overnight temperatures above freezing and frost level.
You’ll toast in the New Year with a little added winds, but no rain. Weather should not be a factor in the planned “New Year’s Eve Sky Spectacular” in Old Sacramento, with fireworks displays at 9 p.m. and midnight.
You’ll wake up to a frosty first day of the year, from an early-morning low in the 30s in Sacramento, single digits in the Sierra. The day promises to be sunny, with temperatures in the 50s.
