Am I seeing things? Perhaps my eyes are playing tricks on me.

I pulled up the weather forecast to check out the upcoming weekend days. My eyes were drawn to Monday's forecast. I stared, sure that I was imagining things. Why? It showed a 20% chance of snow & sleet, with a high temperature of 51 degrees. That temperature and mode of precipitation just don't seem to belong together.
