Weather Alert


Record cold is possible this morning as we head down close to zero for a low. This would break a record of 2 set in 1960. Also watch for areas of freezing fog near the rivers as this bitter cold air interacts with the warmer river water. This fog could make for slick spots on roads next to area rivers.
