The Story

Tired of cold rain? The good news: No rain in forecast for this week. Bad news: It’s going to be coooooold.

The Facts

How do we know this is true? Forecasters through the Queen City are throwing out the word “Arctic” like kids in a snowball fight. Expect a severe dip Wednesday night and all day Thursday, with wind chills maybe near 0! Yes, zero!

Proof of the A word

C5’s Take

We know that for all you Midwest and Buffalo folks, this ain’t nothing. But we’re already sick of it and it’s only early January. And what’s worse: None of this cold weather will bring snow so we can play hooky.
