As crazy as this past year has been for most of us, I think we're all ready to say goodbye to 2022 and ring in the new year this weekend. Here's to hoping 2023 will be a much better year for us all. *Fingers crossed*
Either way, I'm sure you're looking forward to New Year's Eve and any plans, parties, or events you'll be attending to say farewell to 2022. So what does Mother Nature have in store for us this Saturday and Sunday?
From the looks of it, she'll be giving us a reprieve from all the cold and winter craziness for a few days. Right now according to the Farmers' Almanac and the current forecast we'll have warmer temps and no rain.
The weather prediction for both Saturday and Sunday for New Year's Eve and New Years' Day is around 60 degrees during the day and low temperatures in the 40s at night. Not too bad, better than it has been.
