Good morning!

• Enjoy this balmy day while you can. The temperature isn’t expected to go above freezing until the weekend. The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm watch and is expecting a snowfall of four to eight inches between noon tomorrow and 6 a.m. Wednesday, with winds up to 25 miles per hour sending the wind chill down into bitingly cold territory. Temperatures will be in the mid-20s tomorrow and aren’t expected to rise above 20 degrees on Wednesday.
