The first day of 2020 will feature increasing drizzle and light showers. Highs will only be in the upper 40s and 50s thanks to the dense cloud cover.

Rain chances will increase Wednesday night through early Thursday. Thursday morning will also see areas of fog.

Since much of the rain will be on the light side, we expect most locations to record less than a quarter of an inch.
