Temperatures are expected to rise this weekend — raising winter-weary spirits along with them, hopefully — and sunny skies and highs in the 40s are expected next week, forecasters said today.

The weekend will boast high temperatures in the mid-30s with a mix of sunny and cloudy skies. A small snow or rain shower is anticipated Sunday night into Monday morning in the Boston area, though, National Weather Service meteorologist Alan Dunham said.

“This is not going to be any big thing, just a little disturbance passing through,” he said.

Temperatures will drop Tuesday with the high anticipated to be around 30 degrees, but will warm up again Wednesday, with highs in the upper 30s. On Thursday, the highs could reach the mid-40s.

Dunham said this will be a good chance to melt some of the snow that has accumulated from this winter’s parade of storms and while the extended forecast is not yet clear, he hopes the weather is here to stay.

“It we could have it extended for a few more weeks it will be really good and get rid of most of this snow,” he said.
