Good Morning!

• We are expecting fairly reasonable weather for the next couple days. There’s a 30 percent chance of snow showers this morning, with the temperature heading to the high 40s. Tomorrow will be sunny and near 50 degrees. Rain and wind move in to the East End on Wednesday, turning to snow as the temperature falls on Thursday, when we’re likely to see more snow and highs in the upper 20s. But Thursday is a long time away.
