Good Morning: It's Laika Day

Wednesday will be another dry day, with temperatures in the mid-50's. On Thursday it should be a bit warmer, with a forecast high of 59. But on Thursday it will feel like --are you ready for this?-- Wednesday's 56 degrees with the wind chill factor. That's right. We're entering Wind Chill Factor Season. So dig out your mittens and long underwear. You'll be needing them sooner than later.

On this day in 1957, the Soviet spacecraft Sputnik 2 carried the first animal into space, a Siberian Husky named Laika.
