A tightly wound low is spinning heavy snow across the Northern Plains and Upper Midwest. Meanwhile on the warm side, we continue to track rounds of showers with embedded thunderstorms across the Commonwealth. Activity will gradually taper off tonight.

By tomorrow we will be in the “dry slot.” That means it will be a drier day and the sun will shine! Temperatures will be unseasonably warm in the mid 60s. It will be perfect day to head to the tree farm or the roof to decorate outside for Christmas. But beware, gusty winds will linger. Southwesterly winds will still gust up to 35 mph through Sunday afternoon.

Don’t get too used to this warm start to December. Old Man Winter will come a knocking next week. We are tracking highs to drop back into the 40s Monday; it’s the 30s starting Tuesday. Along with the wintry chill, we are tracking a few disturbances that will bring low-end chances for rain and snow showers mid-week.
