Another sub-freezing week in the forecast

It may have only been in the teens today, but it was still a glorious sunset in Orleans County. This photo was taken at about 6 p.m. on Gaines Basin Road in Albion, looking west along the railroad tracks.

The temperatures could fall to 4 degrees tonight, according to the National Weather Service.

Monday will feel like another day in the deep freeze with a high of 11 degrees and temperatures falling to 3 below Monday night. Tuesday is forecast for a high of 18 and a low of 11 degrees.

The Weather Service is forecasting a high of 21 degrees and a low of 7 for Wednesday, with a high of 30 on Thursday and a low of 17. There is a chance for snow on Monday through Wednesday.

The smoke stack from the boiler room at the Albion Correctional Facility is a landmark, especially when the sun is setting, creating a silhouette in the sky. This photo was taken at about 6 p.m. this evening from a picnic table under the pavilion at the Elk’s Club on West State Street.
