Even if these three bicycles weren't chained to the post outside the Westport Public Library, the owners could rest easy knowing their bikes will stay put and probably will for a while.
Buried seat high in now 3-day-old snow, removing these bikes will require more than a key or combination code: It's going to take a shovel and a lot of digging.
But if the owners are waiting for the snow to melt before retrieving their bikes, they might have to wait longer than they hoped. The National Weather Service is forecasting a 30 percent chance of snow for Saturday, with a high of 35 degrees. There's a 40 percent chance of snow Saturday night, with temperatures dropping down to 24.
Sunny skies are expected Sunday, with highs near 35. But wind gusts up to 25 mph will make the air feel even colder. Sunday night will see the return of below-freezing temperatures with a low of about 16 degrees.
On Martin Luther King Jr. Day, partly cloudy skies with highs of 30 are expected during the day. There's a 40 percent chance of snow during the evening.
Finally on Tuesday, temperatures may reach 41 degrees. There's also a 70 percent chance of rain, not snow, which means we may see some melting action. And that's good news for these bike owners.
