Winter returns by Monday morning; accumulating snow to follow
A big-time change in the weather pattern occurs tonight as a strong cold front passes through. Another round of soaking rainfall will accompany the front, in addition to crashing temperatures. It will also be windy tonight thru Tuesday.
Rain ends Monday morning and a few flurries are possible throughout the day with highs hovering in the mid-30s. A round of accumulating snow is then likely Monday night into Tuesday as another disturbance rotates through the Great Lakes.
