Good Tuesday morning!

No snow in the forecast? What could be better?

How about some warmth? Unfortunately, we're not going to have many degrees until this weekend. Bitter cold Canadian air is rushing southward as a trough in the upper-air jet stream brings a stretch of bitter cold weather from the northern Rockies through the Midwest and the Deep South. Temperatures will likely stay in the single digits through Wednesday, and with consistently breezy conditions, we'll have wind chills well below zero through Thursday. By Friday we should hopefully be back in the 20s, and maybe actually above normal once again by this weekend.
