New Year's Day weather: Beautiful day on tap with mostly sunny skies and highs in the upper 50s to low 60s

Happy New Year East Texas!!! The first day of 2014 features more of the same from the last day of 2013.

Our northwestern counties will see lots of sunshine, while our southeastern counties will see more cloud cover. The only difference really comes in the temperatures change, as we'll be topping out in the upper 50s and lower 60s.

The chance for rain moves in this evening and overnight as a front moves into East Texas. The best rain chances will be in our eastern and southeastern counties after 10pm, but even these chances are not all that high.

We are expecting a few showers, but it will not be a washout. Behind this front temperatures tonight will drop into the upper 20s and lower 30s.

More sunshine is on tap for your Thursday with highs near the middle 40s.
