Previously, forecasters had predicted up to 4in of snow. On Thursday, NWS meteorologist Faye Barthold told DNAinfo that Saturday will be "relatively nice,” but we’re still going to take issue with the fact that the predicated high of 47 is "nice". High winds this weekend will push wind chills into the low teens, too. Overall, temperatures are expected to stay low -- about 10 degrees lower than normal according to the NWS.
So congrats winter, you've managed to destroy our dreams of finally getting to drink outside once again. Oh, and you too, spring! Thanks for failing us on your first day.
