It was a pleasure to make a run into the 40s on Tuesday afternoon! The cold air did not want to give up easily, but finally did, changing the wintry glaze to a cold rain.

The cold air is returning tonight and will make its greatest impact on Thursday when the core of the cold air moves in.

In fact, there are two records in play for Thursday. (#1) The current record cold maximum is 17°F set in 1872. (#2) The record low for Friday is -2°F set one year later in 1873. Both are potentially in trouble.
