You know winter has fully set its icy claws into your heart when you hear "35 degrees" and think "hey, I'll take it!" So run outside now to soak up some rays while they last. It's supposed to get cloudy this afternoon and snow a little tonight, with temperatures dropping the rest of the week and into the weekend.

Speaking of the weather, mark your calendars for April 5 when WGN and Fermilab present a Tornado and Severe Weather Seminar! Lectures include: "Hail--Size Really Does Matter!", "The Chicago area's devastating derecho [violent, persistent wind storm] of August, 23, 2007: A look at one of the region's most damaging squall lines in decades with tree and powerline downing 80+mph wind gusts," "Lightning: Understanding One of Nature's most underrated Killers," and from our beloved Tom Skilling "Don't be complacent: Nature provides evidence that a tornado disaster can happen here." We will see you there. [National Weather Forecast]
