watch for today with the winner weather advisory. most an inch or two of snow and a little bit more away from the lake. mid-30's today. 31 tonight. upper 30's monday and tuesday. and tuesday slight chance for a little bit of a mix. a couple of flurries wednesday and thursday. but the weather story later wednesday and thursday will be the very cold air.
