It's about to feel a lot more like December in the Twin Cities.

The warmer temperatures of the past few days will remain for a bit Monday. KSTP's Ken Barlow said the high during the day is expected to rise all the way to 55 degrees.

But it will turn fast. Barlow said the mercury could drop to 38 degrees by 5 p.m., and go lower from there.

Meanwhile, the rain showers that start the day are likely to change to snow after 6 p.m. Barlow's forecast calls for that snow to continue overnight with accumulations of 1 to 2 inches possible.

And it will get windy. The National Weather Service has issued a wind advisory for a number of Minnesota counties - including Hennepin and Ramsey Counties - beginning at 3 p.m. Monday and running through 4 a.m. Tuesday.

The expectation is for winds from the northwest at around 25 to 35 miles per hour with the chance of gusts between 45 to 50 mph.

Counties included in the advisory include Anoka, Blue Earth, Brown, Carver, Dakota, Faribault, Freeborn, Goodhue, Hennepin, Isanti, Le Sueur, Martin, McLeod, Nicollet, Ramsey, Rice, Scott, Sherburne, Sibley, Steele, Waseca, Worthington, Watonwan and Wright.

It will be a lot colder Tuesday. Barlow said the high could reach only 20 degrees with a low of 12. Scattered snow showers are also possible.
