It may have been cold Thursday, but look for a warm-up once we get to the weekend, with Saturday expected to see temperatures reaching 13 degrees or so above normal at Long Island MacArthur Airport, forecasters said.

News 12 meteorologist Rich Hoffman said he expected dry weather through the weekend, “and a nice warm-up, with temperatures above normal for the weekend.”

Friday and Saturday will be sunny, and it will be a mostly sunny Sunday, the weather service said.

The temperatures will rise gradually, from the upper 30s Friday to the low 50s Saturday, and then will dip back to the upper 40s on Sunday, the weather service said.

Look for “continued fair weather and moderating temperatures across the region,” the weather service said, as Friday’s highs should be close to normal and Saturday’s around 13 degrees above normal.

That’s as the month, as of the end of the day Wednesday, was registering 5.1 degrees below normal at the airport, with a range of 2 degrees to 58 degrees as daily highs.
