Charlie's Forecast: Temperatures rise to start the work week

(WITN) -- Monday & Tuesday
With atmospheric pressure holding steady to start the week, skies will remain sunny and winds will decrease. This will help temperatures warm into the low to mid 50s as we start the work week. Wind speeds will pick up speed by Tuesday afternoon ahead of a dry cold front, but wind chills shouldn't play too much of a factor due to the warming temps.

A hefty cold snap is in the works for the middle of the work week. A dry cold front will sweep over the area Tuesday evening, sending our morning lows down into the mid to upper 20s for Wednesday morning. The afternoon won't be too much warmer as highs are expected to stay in the 30s. Winds will be a concern as well, with wind speeds ranging between 10-15 mph out of the northwest. This will make the warmest temps of the day feel more like the low 30s. Overnight lows will fall to the low to mid 20s as we wake up Thursday morning.

Thursday & Friday
Temperatures will warm up rapidly Thursday, rising into the low 50s despite starting the day off in the low 20s range. The influx of heat will be caused by the jet stream pushing further northward and southwesterly winds bringing in warm air from the Gulf. There will be a few more clouds in the sky as we close out the work week, but rain drops will be nonexistent for the entire work week.
