We're just past the middle of January, and for Central New York, the normal high temperature is 30 degrees.  But on Saturday, we saw a 50 degrees in downtown Utica, and some other places in the area reached the low 50's.

On Sunday, Rome's forecasted high is 49 degrees.  The only remnants of the snow we've had so far this winter are the large snowbanks that remain in many of the large parking lots.

However, according to the U.S Weather Service in Binghamton, the office that issues the forecasts for this area, we may see slightly below normal temps by next weekend.

Rain is forecast for Monday, snow showers on Tuesday, more rain on Wednesday, and snow showers again on Thursday.  Temperatures will be in the mid to upper 30's on those days.

On Friday, expect snow and a high of only 32, with even lower temperatures for the weekend.
