Don’t cancel plans. We repeat, don’t cancel plans.
New York City is expected to be bombarded with soothing sunshine this weekend, following a period of 11 straight days of cloudy skies.
Saturday’s forecast is a high of 42 degrees and a low of 30 degrees, but completely sunny. Sunday is much the same: sunshine with no signs of overcast skies and a high of 44 degrees.
In fact, the sunshine is expected to last through Wednesday, when the forecast changes to “mostly sunny.”
The upcoming soaking of sunshine is a particularly happy sight given the nearly two straight weeks of cloudy weather, including another rain storm on Friday.
To reemphasize, there is not a travel advisory for the weekend, the city is not under a flood watch, and there is not a foreboding forecast from the National Weather Service that gives an incredibly small chance of a tornado making its way through Manhattan.
To make matters better, Staten Island Chuck the groundhog, also predicted an early spring on Friday.
Enjoy the weekend.
