As promised, it was a chilly morning around the region, with lots of images like this greeting folks as they started their day. Temperatures recovered pretty nicely though, and we ended up with a real gem of a day weather wise. It will be chilly again tonight, with many locations dropping into the 30s, and frost on cars and grassy surfaces is likely.
