Good Morning! It’s -12 degrees at 8:00 am with low thin clouds, calm winds and a trace of new snow. We’ve received 12″ of fresh pow over the weekend. Look for another cold night tonight with lows again in the negative teens. We are kicking off a much drier trend and sunny skies will be with us through the extended forecast, hopefully bringing the temps back up.
