WEATHER

The winds are picking back up today, with showers thrown in for good measure. Luckily, the max temp of 15 continues, so at least it's not getting any colder. The news isn't so good for those planning outdoor weekend activities however, with tomorrow and Sunday both bringing 12 degrees and showers.
