Try to limit your time outdoors these next two days. Don’t leave your pets outside for more than a brief time, as they too can develop frostbite and be adversely affected by the cold weather. Also, check on friends along with family to be sure they are staying warm and safe.

Milder weather with highs near 30 is expected by mid-week. The next chance for some more snowfall may arrive as early Friday afternoon this week, with a better chance for snowfall and accumulation Friday evening and again going into early next week.
