Binghamton, N.Y. (WBNG Binghamton) Locals were out and about on Thursday, soaking up the sun, and enjoying the first bit of warm spring weather.

People in Binghamton were happy to be outdoors and many enjoyed the warm weather by dining outside.

We stopped by Zona & Co. Grille, located on Hawley Street, as the outdoor patio was a hotspot this afternoon.

"This is the first time we've eaten outside this year and it's a little windy but we're enjoying ourselves," said a Binghamton University student.

Others were in disbelief by the sunny weather.

"I'm just glad it's not snowing anymore and that we're all able to come out. It's a beautiful day. I came out with a jacket today expecting it to still be freezing. I didn't believe it," said another BU student.

Many are hoping the winter weather is gone for good.
