Glorious, Spring-like Weather Ahead

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York While February is traditionally among the coldest times of the year, that doesn’t mean this normally frosty month is immune to extremes.Brace yourselves, Long Islanders: You’re about to confront a significant winter warm-up, with temperatures reaching the 40s and topping off in the mid-50s on Sunday. Put away the snow shovel. Break out the sun block.The upcoming spring-like forecast features sunny skies through President’s Day Weekend and well into next week.This Friday’s outlook calls for sunny skies with a high of 41 before temps take a dive in the evening to the freezing mark.The mercury will shake off the shivers Saturday as mostly sunny skies and temperatures pushing 50 degrees are likely. As the forecast stands, Sunday is expected to be even more glorious: a whopping 55-degree day featuring mostly sunny skies. (Perhaps some golf is in order?)Things are also looking up for President’s Day, which is expected to resemble the weekend’s unseasonably warm forecast.It may not technically be beach weather, but the forecast should bring a wide smile to anyone still reeling from last week’s blizzard, which dumped up to 16 inches of snow on the Island. The first major storm of 2017 was followed up by blustery weather and powerful winds, which temporarily knocked out power to thousands of PSEG Long Island customers.Now we can all talk about the weather with something positive to say. In these politically fraught days, such news is always welcome. Almost like a breath of fresh air.last_img read more
