An early look at precipitation types for New Year's Eve and New Year's Day.

Sunday will be quiet, with sunshine and much colder temperatures, behind a cold front. Highs will stay in the 20s. Much of New Year's Eve day is quiet. Clouds will increase through the afternoon.

This is where things get messy.

Our next storm will continue to move in from the south into the early part of Monday evening. As of now, most of the precipitation will be moving into far Southern New England. So, you should be able to get to your parties okay. We should see any precipitation move into New Hampshire and Southern Maine, by 8 PM.
