The winter that those in New York State endured, especially off Lake Erie and Lake Ontario, might have been the worst in the last couple of decades.

Two historic snowstorms in Western New York (lake effect snowstorm, blizzard), brutally cold temperatures in January and February and the slow process of getting to the warmer temperatures across the state.

The good news is that this past week finally brought relief for the temperatures.

The highs for the weekend should be between the mid-60's to the mid-to-high 70's, depending on where you live. It should be a nice feeling as we take a break from the grind of working.

However, there is some bad news beyond this weekend in the temperature department.

The National Weather Service says that the outlook for weather doesn't look as warm as it has been lately, with below normal temperatures across the state starting next week.

That doesn't mean we will get snow or bitterly cold temperatures, but the temps will be a little cooler for next week, which means maybe skip the shorts and t-shirt.

High temperatures in places like Buffalo and Rochester will be in the low 60's for the start of next week, with lows creeping towards the 30's, according to The Weather Channel's forecast, which is very cold for the middle of May.

The good news?

It appears like nothing but 70-degree high temperatures by the end of the months, which will be right around Memorial Day Weekend. We're creeping closer to summertime.
