Another year is coming to an end, and that means it's time to ring in 2012.

Whether you're going to be snug at home, travelling, at a party or an outdoor event as the clock strikes midnight, knowing the weather forecast will be important.

“On New Year's Eve, people are often outdoors longer than they normally would be in the middle of winter,” says Rob Davis, a meteorologist at The Weather Network. “Be aware of the temperature and windchill forecast. Dress accordingly, and take it easy on the roads.”

Be sure to check The Weather Network's New Year's Eve forecast each day leading up to the big event.

If you're travelling over the holidays, we have tips for hitting the road, planning for the airport and keeping your home safe. We also recommend our Highway Conditions Report and Flight Tracker.
