Central New York is kind of notoriously known for wild and unpredictable weather. This past weekend, we experienced snow, sun, rain, hail, and tonight we're expecting a freeze warning into tomorrow morning.

But do not freight! The National Weather Service is reporting a light at the end of the tunnel. Consistent warm weather is expected to begin this upcoming weekend.

  • Saturday: A chance of showers. Partly sunny, with a high near 70.
  • Sunday: Showers likely. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 71.

The other good news here is that it's not just expected for this weekend, but according to the 6-10 day weather outlook, it's here to stay:

The 6-10 day Outlook gives the confidence that a forecaster has, given as a probability, that the observed temperature, averaged over upcoming days 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10 will be in the range of one of three possible categories - below (B), normal (N), or above (A).

Based on the graphic, New York State as a whole is projected to have temperatures that fall above normal. We haven't seen a temperature map like this in quite sometime.

We're slated to have 70 degree weather this weekend. Based on this map, there is a 40-50 percent chance that those temperatures could BE WARMER!

What are your plans when it gets warmer outside? I know I've seen people already out grilling, having fires and trying to get some fresh air. Personally, I can't wait to be able to go tubing down West Canada Creek. But that will have to wait for it to get a weeeee bit warmer I think.
