Today is the winter solstice and marks the first day of winter, officially at 5:23 pm.  Today was anything but winter-like with record high temperatures.  Temperatures this afternoon rose into the mid 60s, breaking the old record of 58 set back in 2013.  Colder conditions will return late tonight with rain showers expected to end as snow showers Saturday morning.  Accumulations will be minor with a coating in the valleys and up to an inch across some of the higher elevations.
