Across the region overnight, clear skies and diminishing winds set the stage for favorable radiational cooling. Anticipate lows falling into the teens area-wide overnight with some spots falling into the single digits. Afternoon highs in the low to mid 30s will continue to be much colder than normal Wednesday.

If you live in a mobile home, you might want to let your water drip from the faucets so they don’t freeze. Also bundle up the little ones (and yourself) when you go out in the morning!
