Hunkering down

Moonlit skies early along with bitterly cold weather. However, southerly winds will push temps into the upper 20s this afternoon.  Less windy today under partly sunny skies. Another surge of polar air will send temps into the single digits Thursday and Friday mornings with highs in the teens and lower 20s.  More light snow is possible over the weekend.  Byron has the details in his 14 First Alert forecast.
