Weather: The worst of the cold is over as winds die down, but you should still use caution when you head outside today: the high will only reach 17 under mostly sunny skies. The day will start with "real feel" temperatures of -28. The real feel temp will not break out of the mid-single digits on Saturday.

We're in for a thaw tomorrow, with a high of 47. Look for clouds in the morning and sun later in the day. Partly cloudy on Monday with a high of 45. Check here for the latest Andover forecast.
