The CSRA can expect temperatures in the teens again tonight. The cold snap has sent something of a shock through the area.
This morning's freezing weather caused some icy problems along Knox Avenue in North Augusta, near the Walgreen's drug store. It looked as if some automatic sprinklers were left on, and ice was covering part of the road this morning.
And it was another chilly day. Students at AR Johnson Magnet School in Augusta were all bundled up to keep warm as they headed home after their first day back to class.
We found a few folks out and about downtown today, too. The cold weather wasn't stopping people from spending time enjoying the shops and restaurants...but they did have to add a few extra layers of clothing to fend off the chill in the air.
Humans aren't the only ones who have to bundle up to keep warm. We found horses wrapped in blankets in a field on Martintown Road near I-20. Sometimes we don't think about our four-legged friends, but it's always a good idea to make sure they stay warm too.
It's not going to get any better tonight, with the low falling to 16 degrees. Thankfully, a warm-up is on the way this weekend.
