    The weekend felt more like spring in Pittsburgh, but more typical December weather will arrive by Christmas.

    Pittsburgh set a new record high on Sunday when temperatures before daybreak soared to 72 F, surpassing the previous record of 67 F from 1949.

    Hopefully residents did not bury their winter jackets in the closet.

    Noticeably colder air is headed back to Pittsburgh, leading to an overnight low of 40 F Sunday night with temperatures continuing to slowly fall through the 30s on Monday.

    A couple of flurries will also fly on Monday with more numerous snow showers to follow for late Monday night through Tuesday. The snow could accumulate a coating to an inch with a few places picking up slightly more.

    Motorists should prepare for reduced visibility and roads to turn slick for a time in any heavier burst of snow.

    Accompanying the snow on Tuesday will be even colder air that will hold temperatures to the 20s.

    Despite some sunshine returning, chilly air will remain in control for Christmas Day.
