The R-C Morning Report for Dec. 12

Valley residents and businesses continue to deal with frozen pipes thawing and bursting. Not much you can do about it now except know where the water shutoff valve to reduce the damage.

There’s some fog out in the Valley this morning along the river. Be careful on Highway 395 near Cradlebaugh. Today should be the last one for a while where high temperatures just crack freezing.

Not all that haze in the air is fog this morning. We’re still under an air quality alert issued by the National Weather Service. The air quality monitor at Ranchos Aspen Park had unhealthy readings for seven hours last night. At 5 a.m. it was at unhealthy for sensitive groups.

While daytime highs will warm up into the 50s by next week, lows will be down to the teens. There’s no sign of precipitation in the forecast, yet. Today will be sunny with a high near 33 degrees.
