What to Know
- Temps are forecast to surpass 60 in some areas of the tri-state on Sunday
- The mild weather is expected to continue for President's Day and into next week
- The NOAA says a mild spring is likely
The mild temperatures and abundant sunshine throughout Saturday will continue a spring-like Presidents Day weekend with temperatures expected to break the 60-degree mark Sunday.
Temperatures warmed to an above-average 61 degrees in Central Park by mid-afternoon Saturday as bitter winds subsided. Sunday consists of mostly sunny skies and dry weather. Some temperature highs may be broken today as highs climb into the mid-60s.
A weak cold front will slowly move through the tri-state Sunday, but we won't receive chilly temps — the cold front will be so weak that high temperatures will still reach well above normal. However, a stronger cold front will roll through during the overnight into Monday morning.
President’s Day will be slightly cooler, about 50 degrees, but it'll still be unseasonably mild.
Highs will be near or in the 50s throughout next week. The week starts sunny but becomes progressively cloudier ahead of possible showers Friday. Showers are possible late Tuesday and are likely early Wednesday.
By next Saturday, highs should be back up in the mid-50s.
NOAA is forecasting an unseasonably warm spring ahead, despite what Puxatony Phil predicted earlier this month. Maybe Staten Island Chuck should become the national groundhog. He predicted an early spring.
