A short-lived warmup will continue through Monday in the Atlanta area.

However, the winds of change will start Monday as a storm system gets ready to bring chillier temperatures and the threat of rain and sleet on Tuesday. The icy mix could cause problems for Wednesday morning's commute.

The high Tuesday may not make it to 40 degrees. A chance of rain is also possible Wednesday and Thursday.
