We are getting off to a rather chilly start this morning on the southern periphery of a significant Arctic blast of cold air. While we may be starting in the upper 20s, at least we are in the upper 20s above zero — can’t say the same for our friends in the Upper Midwest.

The week ahead: January 14-20

/ January 14, 2019 at 8:24 AM
Seven-day forecast from the National Weather Service. Chilly start, but it gets warmer as the week progresses. Next rain chances by Friday and the weekend. (Sorry.)
