    Good Tuesday.  We are all under a WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY and some of us under a WIND CHILL ADVISORY through the day. It will be cold all day with high temperatures only reaching the upper 20s and low 30s.  These high temps will be reached early on at about noon, and then temps will be dropping through the afternoon as a cold front works through.
