The Weather Channel says that highs Saturday will be in the mid 40s, with mostly cloudy skies. There will be a slight chance of afternoon showers Sunday, as skies will again be cloudy and highs in the mid 40s. Monday will start next week with a slight chance for rain, and highs in the 40s.
TWC says that temperatures will remain above average for the Northeast from February through April. Climate experts say the warmer temps are a combination of the Polar Vortex staying closer to the high latitudes, and a persistent La Niña. This La Niña event has now stretched into its third straight year.
While some forecasts had called for a snowier winter with colder than normal temperatures in the Hudson Valley. things have stayed pretty mild and with little snow. Aside from some areas such as Buffalo, snowfall totals have remained far below normal for most of New York so far this season
