You may know this next interviewee from his previous roles under the PAC spotlights. However, those spotlights look a little different now and senior Luke Bucaro is here to shed some light on how competition theater is adjusting during the pandemic.
According to the National Weather Service, roughly 150 million Americans were under a winter storm warning, winter weather advisory, or ice storm warning that spanned across 25 states this past week, forcing some to go without power and heat. Luckily, things are starting to warm up in our area, but that does not mean you won’t want to wear your winter jacket this weekend.
Today’s high is 18 degrees, with a low of 2 this evening.
Saturday we have a high of 24 and low of 17.
Expect some snow showers on Sunday, with a high of 30 and low of 22.
Though we are starting to see temperatures above freezing, it is still worth noting that your family should have an emergency survival kit.
Stay warm, Raiders!
