"At least some breaks in store it looks like, we got some pretty chilly days for us for the rest of the work week, in fact daytime highs Thursday and Friday are only expected to about minus 15 or minus 16 and those are the high temperatures for the day, in fact are normal low for this time of year is minus 10."
