Forecast for Rose Parade: chilly with a chance of rain

Prepare for a very cold night and morning before the Rose Parade in Pasadena on New Year’s Day, with temperatures in the 40s, meteorologists said.

The cold front that is expected to sweep through Southern California on Tuesday night and Wednesday morning is expected to leave chilly weather that will last through the new year.

“In the wake of that cold front, there is no significant warmup in sight. So it will be chilly throughout this week and continue throughout the weekend,” said Andy Mussoline, a meteorologist with accuweather.com.

Forecasters predicted mostly cloudy skies above Pasadena on Jan. 1. The low in the city on New Year’s morning could be 41 degrees, and the high is expected to be only 56, said Bonnie Bartling, a specialist for the National Weather Service in Oxnard.

Bartling said there is a 15% chance of rain on the Rose Parade, but it seems more likely that that storm will arrive many hours after the parade ends, possibly on Saturday night.
