Blustery and cold! Few snow showers tonight

Warmer times ahead, just have to get through the next 6 months. Very cold the next few days followed by a frigid airmass late this weekend as the Polar Vortex makes landfall over the Great Lakes.


The next few days will be on the cold side around here with a favorable pattern in place allowing cold air to drop south out of northern Canada.
