  • Tuesday: Cold but dry. Partly cloudy with a high of 21 degrees and a low of 12 degrees.  
  • Wednesday: There's a 30 percent chance of snow, with morning snow showers expected. The high temperature won't top 27 degrees, the overnight low, 13 degrees.
  • Thursday: Mostly sunny with a high of 30 degrees and an overnight low of 27 degrees. 
  • Friday: Cloudy but a tad warmer with a high of 37 degrees and a low of 29 degrees. There's just a 10 percent chance of precipitation.

5. Will Superbowl Sunday become Superbowl Monday?Depending on the weather, the big game could be rescheduled. Currently the forecast for Sunday's NFL title game between the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., is clear skies but low temperatures (a high of 39 with a low of 27). To date, the coldest temperature for a Superbowl was 39 degrees—and that was in New Orleans!

other than news of another lifeless waterlogged body, i'm concerned these teens needing jeans is a misnomer. I notice many of them have torn , ripped and sold parts of their new Levis, probably in exchange for some body scents or even to pay off their cell phone bills. even the boys seem to have trouble finding good belts to keep their clown costumes from falling down. these days i really worry about them, life has become so complicated for them. ;-))
