Leave the faucets dripping to avoid any pipe bursts.
We stay frigid into the weekend, with the potential for more light snow showers late Friday and early Saturday. Cold and dry on Valentine's Day Sunday. Rain or snow is possible on Monday. Stay tuned, as specifics are not yet known with any potential system on Monday...Winter isn't done yet.
Temperature Outlook: Highs in the 20s through Thursday, 30s Friday, 20s this weekend, and 30s Monday. Lows in the teens through Friday night, and single digits Saturday night (getting close to the record low of 3 set in 1971)!
Our average high is 49°, low 27°.
