This calm weather is going to continue through the first half of the week, but the reminder that winter is still here will continue to show through the morning hours. Just like this morning, it is going to be a frigid start. Temperatures across the Mid-Ohio Valley are starting off in the low 20s and a few locations (around Athens and Caldwell) are in the mid-teens.

Highs will be hovering around the mid to upper 40s. It will not feel too cold thanks to our winds staying on the calm side.
