Warmer air will gradually return as we move into the weekend. Enjoy it, because it is very temporary.
Remnants of a storm will bring a few rain and snow showers Sunday and Monday.

We'll keep an eye on how this storm develops, but regardless of the snow potential, much colder air could move in again by Christmas Day and the day after.
