Sure its the holiday season, so when we see Donner and Blitzen in a headline we automatically think reindeer -- but not so fast. The German translation is thunder and lightning, and that's exactly what we have in our odd late-November forecast.

Showers and possibly a thunderstorm are on the menu across Central Minnesota tonight, with a chance of showers for tomorrow morning, then a chance of showers and thunderstorms in the middle of the day -- returning to just showers late in the day Monday.
