Weather forecast is for more of the same -- cold
It's a crisp, clear morning in Batavia with a temperature of 4 degrees.
Forecasters continue to call for a prolonged period of bitter cold with a mix of snow. Saturday, there's an 80-percent chance of a snow shower with temperatures rising to a balmy 24 degrees.

But isn't winter suppose to be cold? I remember going to school in -10 temps and blowing snow. Terms like polar vortex is nothing more than what was called a cold snap WHICH was an a typical winter. Not saying that's what's being said, just speaking generally.
Of course it's supposed to be cold, but are we supposed to not report on it being cold? Just ignore it?
Average Low for Batavia in January is 18. Today dawned at 4. We aren't predicted to exceed 18 until Saturday, which is 3 days out. It might not be big news, but I'd call that news.
Great pic, Howard. Have always been amazed at the steam that comes from the plant as I travel from Pavilion to Batavia. On such cold days like now, it's even more impressive.
