Thursday November 9

Temperatures this morning are a far cry from the 70s earlier this week, but close to normal. The next blast of arctic air is moving across the Great Lakes and may come with time record cold first noticed on Friday. If you wake up early enough, you might even see a few flurries as it arrives. But first, we have to get through today. Here is the brief look and then beyond which shows upper level support for a cold Thanksgiving week and possibly early start to winter.
