If you’re ready for some warmer weather around here, I’ve got some good news for you.
On Friday, weather.com is forecasting a balmy 50 degrees. After a few weeks of sub-freezing temperatures and a few dustings of snow, 50 degrees sounds pretty dad-gum amazing, if you ask me. Bring it.
If you’re not ready for the warmer weather, there’s plenty of cold scheduled for this week too (weirdo).
Here’s what’s new for this week. Hope you guys have a great one.
