The New Year’s Eve celebrations have already begun for Ravens and Eagles fans.
Last year Salisbury only reached a high temperature of 25 degrees on New Year’s Eve. What a difference a year makes!
We are likely to see a period of rain this afternoon and tonight with temperatures that climb throughout the day. I do not believe that the day will be a washout. It is possible that the mercury could reach 60 degrees by the time some us watch the ball drop. Personally, I prefer the muskrat drop in Princess Anne.
Since the beginning of this century Salisbury has reached the low 60’s on New Year’s Eve twice; 61 degrees in 2011 and 62 degree in 2015.
The outlook for New Year’s Day incredibly includes temperatures, under partly cloudy skies, soaring into the mid to upper 60’s before beginning to drop steadily late in the day.
The last time that Salisbury topped 60 degrees on New Year’s Day was in 2007 when the high was 63. It came with a price however as we picked up 1.67 inches of rain that day.
Our record high temperature of 69 degrees on New Year’s Day occurred in 2005. That record is possibly in jeopardy. Wouldn’t that be cool? Yes, and warm at the same time!
