Winter's inevitable return...

Today's record warmth comes to an abrupt end.

Posted: Dec. 21, 2018 6:06 PM

We tied a record high on Friday, with a high of 59 degrees on the first day of winter. In addition to the warmth, many of us saw sunshine across the region, making things feel like spring. This time of year, this type of warmth is fleeting, and this one is no exception.

A cold front is on the way for tonight, and is expected to bring heavy rain and windy conditions. A few rumbles of thunder are possible, too. The brunt of the wind is expected between 9pm-1am. Colder weather looks to return, with rain changing to snow late tonight.

By Saturday morning, the weather is expected to look and feel like winter, again. Widespread light snow is expected, with 1-2" of accumulation for most areas. Hilltops could see more, especially since they will change over to snow before the rest of the region.

Light snow comes to and end late Saturday, with drier weather expected Sunday. Another round of widespread light snow is expected Sunday night into Monday.
