Rowan weather: Still cold; did someone say snow?
We remain under a cold wave advisory, which means now is the time to protect your pipes by letting water drip. It’s also time to bring the pets inside and provide them with non-frozen water.
If you are going to be outside, wear several light layers, especially on top, and two layers to protect your legs. Hats, gloves and scarves are recommended throughout the week.
