We are starting the work week off on a chilly note as temperatures will only top out in the mid 40s today. Progressing forward, much warmer air will nose in from our south. Looking below, this has been the change over the past 24 hours.
Taking a peak towards the end of the work week, afternoon highs Thursday will be 15 to 20 degrees above average. Yes, you heard that right. Some locations could be as warm as 70 for afternoon highs to begin December. Take advantage, because these won't be around for too long.
Warming temperatures can be thanked due to high pressure over the area. This will also lead to dry conditions for the next several days. A few disturbances will round the Great Lakes region and down into the Ohio Valley, but other than a few clouds at times, we'll stay dry. Our next best rain chance doesn't arrive until late weekend.
Overall, the biggest change this week will be the warming temperatures. A change of nearly 15 degrees can be expected this time tomorrow, with even warmer temperatures in the days to follow.
