Please explain the highs and lows. For instance, on Thur. of this week. The high temp for Thur. is 51 and that's easy to understand. However, the low temp is 34. Now, does that mean that Wed. night into Thur. is going to be 34, or does it mean that Thur. night into Fri. is going to be 34? I have a concrete business and we rely heavily on for our forcasting.

The 7-day forecast that you see is actually fairly simple but confuses a lot of people, you aren't alone. The high occurs on that day, usually in the afternoon unless otherwise specified by the forecaster. The low is the morning low of the day the forecast is for. So in your example, the high on Thursday was for 51 degrees and the low of 34 would be Thursday morning, yes, Wednesday overnight into Thursday early morning.

Sometimes we can have lows in the afternoon too, whoever is forecasting will specify any irregularities in the forecast.

So the highs and lows are daytime highs and morning lows for the days listed in the graphic you see.
