It's never usually that simple in the winter. While Sunday felt nicer outside, the next few days will feel amazing! However, as warmer air enters the atmosphere we have the potential for different types of precipitation. And here's a graphic demonstrating why with the types of air in the layers of the atmosphere:

Because it's been so cold and there's snow on the ground, there is a concern for sleet and freezing rain as ground temperatures are around and below freezing. Hence why the National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for Monday:

Sleet and freezing rain will be possible around the morning commute, as shown here at 6am on the HRRR:

Additionally, as temperatures climb above freezing and snow melts, we could have some re-freezing overnight.

We are in for a nice thaw, though!

Temperature trend for the Cedar Rapids area:

And the Quad Cities:
