AccuWeather forecast for Thursday
AccuWeather forecast for Thursday

The National Weather Service is predicting a 100% chance of rain throughout Delaware on New Year’s Day, following a chance of light rain on New Year’s Eve.

In New Castle County, the government agency is predicting a 60% chance of rain on Thursday during the day and a 30% chance Thursday night, but with “new precipitation amounts of less than a tenth of an inch possible.”

The low Thursday night for New Castle County is expected to be 33, with the highs both Thursday and Friday in the 40s, so the precipitation should be all rain.

The precipitation forecast is similar for Kent and Sussex counties, with slightly higher temperatures.

 

The rain is coming from a massive system that The Weather Channel plots covering 26 states, from Texas to Massachusetts. AccuWeather’s map, by contrast, puts more of the South in the clear and pushes the storm front further north.

The Weather Channel is predicting only an 80% chance of rain on New Year’s Day. AccuWeather offers a 71% chance in New Castle County.

AccuWeather predicts 1 to 3 inches of rain in a post headlined “’Miserable’ weather to mark beginning of 2021 in Northeast,” with the possibility of flooding, icy roads and power outages in areas north of Delaware.
