Despite some cold temperatures last week across New York, things have improved steadily as this week has gone on and next week looks like a stretch of days most of us have been waiting on for a long, long time.

The National Weather Service is forecasting summer-like temperatures for New York State next week and plenty of dry time as well.

Above averages temperatures are predicted across most of New York State through most of next week.

Buffalo will see temps anywhere from 70-80 degrees through next Saturday. Areas of central and upstate New York will see temperatures as high as the low-to-mid 80’s by the end of next week.

The good news is it looks like the rain will stay away for much of next week. Many of us have been cooped up in our homes and work places for weeks and even months, so next week finally looks like the time to go out with family and friends and even a hike through a local park.

I know my dog cannot WAIT to go for long walks again. It’s almost here…
