Yes, It's That Cold Outside This Morning In The Valley

 That's not an official reading, but it's as official as it gets on the dashboard of my SUV. It read six degrees when I stopped at the top of Monte Sano this morning. Fortunately, the wind wasn't too bad. Still, it's cold! Meteorologist David Ernst has the latest on where the mercury goes from here. He has your Weather On The Tens. http://bit.ly/GSwBfq

Keep in mind there are a lot of school districts that are starting several hours late this morning. Even if you don't have children in mind, be aware. School zones will be operating in the 10:00 a.m. range, though several are still opening at their normal times for parents who need to drop off kids so they can get to work. They're just starting class later. In other words, figure on school zones pretty much all morning. Here's our list of delays in the valley http://bit.ly/1kv5cmT
