Moderate weather, chance for rain in store for end of 2018

If you’re ringing in the New Year at an outdoor celebration on the Peninsula, there’s good news and bad news.

The good news: It won’t be too cold. The temperature will be in the mid-50s all day and night, according to the National Weather Service.

The bad news: It might rain.

In the early afternoon, the chance for rain is 60 percent. Then, after 7 p.m., there’s a chance for showers.

That likelihood is pretty low — about 30 percent. But still, better to be safe than sorry. The wind will also be a factor. It will be gusty, with the breeze getting up to 25 mph.

Similar weather is expected New Year’s Day. There’s a chance for rain, and the day should be balmy, with an anticipated high temperature of 70.
