Overcast skies for New Year’s Day with periodic chances of flurries

Temperatures will be near normal through the week, with dry conditions expected through at least Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service in Wilmington.

New Year’s Day brings cloudy skies and mild temperatures with highs in the lower 40s, followed by a cold New Year’s night with skies going from cloudy to partly cloudy. The low will fall around 26 degrees.

Persistent cloud coverage is likely to stick around all day and periods flurries or sprinkles may occur especially during the first half of the day, according to the NWS. Widespread precipitation is not expected since saturation remains very shallow behind the front, the NWS added.

On Tuesday, mostly sunny skies will beckon. Highs will be near 42 degrees, while the lows will fall around 27 degrees. Tuesday night will leave cold temperatures and mostly overcast skies.

Partial sunshine will settle in Wednesday with a high near 43 degrees, followed by a mostly cloudy night with a low of 27 degrees.

A partly sunny sky will occur on Thursday with highs in the upper 30s. Overnight, mostly clear skies and very cold temperatures will remain.

The low will fall around 20 degrees.
