As the calendar turns over to 2016 tonight, colder temperatures will move into the region. Expect tonight’s low to reach around 29 degrees.

For New Year’s Day, partly sunny skies and a high near 36 degrees could potentially lead to a chance of snow flurries Friday evening. The low is expected to dip to 25.

A mostly sunny Saturday kicks off the holiday weekend with the high expected to be near 35 degrees and the low expected to be 28.

Sunday appears to bring with it a high of 37 and a low of 22.
