If you’re heading out of Austin to ring in the new year (why would you really want to when there’s a bunch of great parties you can check out around town!), don’t forget to check the weather!

On Saturday evening, a line of precipitation is expected to stretch from the Texas Gulf Coast across a large part of the South and through upstate New York. Other parts of the country with moisture, according to the New Year’s Eve forecast, include the Pacific Northwest, central California and areas around the lower Rocky Mountains.

On New Year’s Day, icy weather is expected over northwestern states while rain will continue to dampen southeastern states and parts of the Midwest.
