Our warm weather, so unseasonal, is about to return to seasonal temperatures, starting tomorrow. Low temperatures will be in the minus mid teens and day time highs will not get above zero again for probably 4 or 5 months. The drop in temperature will be accompanied by high winds and probably some blowing snow. Brrrrr....well, here we go again for another winter.
