    Morning all. 23F under cloudy skies. Early this morning, it’s possible that we may see a brief round of flurries or freezing drizzle which may lead to some slick roads. This afternoon is when most of the precipitation will arrive and a trace to an inch of snow still looks pretty likely. High today of 29F.

  12. Lockheed Ad - January 1943 1940: Hitler orders the postponement of his attack in the west until the Spring. Likely reasons for this are the compromise of 'Fall Gelb' and increasing criticism from some commanders that the plan was too predictable. Led by Gerd von Rundstedt, they proposed instead that the main blow should come through the wooded Ardennes region in southern Belgium as the allies would not expect this. 1940: British submarines Seahorse, Undine and Starfish reported sunk after penetrating Heligoland Bight. *Carole Lombard
