After a chilly -- but not freezing -- start to the week, temperatures are forecast to bounce back to seasonable levels for most of the week, starting with highs near 60 degrees Monday.
A freeze warning was in effect early Monday for Howard, Carroll and northern Baltimore counties, but temperatures did not drop below the mid- to upper-30s. At Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport, temperatures dropped to 38 degrees.
Temperatures are expected to reach the mid-50s by midday, topping out in the upper 50s in the afternoon. Partly cloudy skies and 10-15 mph winds are expected.
Highs are forecast to bounce back to the mid-60s Tuesday and Wednesday, with lows in the 40s.
Showers are likely Thursday, with highs around 60 degrees, before another burst of cold air brings temperatures back down to the 30s and 40s Friday.
