WEATHER NEWS: PM Update: Turning even colder into Thursday


Temperatures had a small spike on west winds this morning, briefly pushing readings into the low 50s area-wide. That’s still on the cold side for this time of year — something we can expect for many days to come. In fact, tonight is colder than last night, and tomorrow is colder than today.
