Forecasters are not using terms such as “high winds,” “snow” or even “rain” in this weekend’s forecasts and “higher temperatures” is being used for the first time in a long while.
Instead of the forecast vocabulary that has grown old for many, this weekend is expected to provide “abundant sunshine” with high temperatures reaching up toward 50° with light and variable winds. That’s the forecast, plan and simple.
Looking beyond the weekend, a system is expected to arrive Monday afternoon that will bring blustery winds and an 80% chance of precipitation. Fortunately, for those tired of the snow, temperatures are expected to range between the mid- to upper-30s and 40° meaning, outside of a slight chance of rain and snow before 10am, the precipitation is expected to fall as rain. The rainy weather is expected to continue into Tuesday morning.
After Tuesday, the forecast through Friday returns to mostly sunny days and partly cloudy evenings with little chance of precipitation while temperatures range from the mid-30s to the upper-40s.
