Head South if you're looking for warm weather

Chilly weather looks to continue this week, combined with scattered rain, wintry mix, and sleet.
For your Sunday, the low pressure system will cross the straits early in the morning. This will cause us to hit our high temps earlier on (mainly 40s) and see them fall during the day. Expect a breezy day as winds shift to come out of the NW at a steady 10-20mph with gusts in the 30s. Also, with cooler air filtering in behind the low, we'll see a brief change from rain to wintry mix and light snow showers. We're not expecting a lot of accumulation-but it may be enough to make sidewalks and such slippery.
We dry out for the afternoon and many of us will see a lot of sunshine later in the day. Things stay quiet Sunday night with calm winds and partly cloudy skies.
The start of the work week brings more scattered rain and wintry mix. That low pressure that had moved through Sunday morning? It's accompanying cold front is expected to become stationary in the Ohio Valley. This means the further north you are the more sun you'll see during the mid-week, and the further south the better chance of more cloud cover and scattered rain and wintry mix.
Low pressure out of the plains moves along the front, touching off rain showers across the viewing area Monday. After a bit of a break Tuesday, more scattered showers and wintry mix become possible Tuesday night and continue through the end of the workweek as the front continues to linger and another low pressure moves through the Ohio Valley. High temperatures throughout the week look to remain in the mid 30s to upper 40s, few 50s here and there Monday and Tuesday.
On a side note, for those that have family in the plains and southern U.S., there is potential for severe weather there this week and the forecast is something they'll want to keep an eye on.
