If you shivered through the trip to Grandma's house for Thanksgiving, then found yourself bundled up like an Arctic explorer on your Black Friday shopping trip, you'll like this coming week a bit better.

Warm temperatures are back for several days just as most people end their holiday weekend and return to work and school on Monday.

Sunday will be nice, with sunny skies, light winds and highs in the lower 60s. Monday will be even warmer, reaching the middle 60s, before a chance of rain returns Monday night into Tuesday and Wednesday.

But temperatures should remain moderate throughout the week, with highs in the mid- to upper 50s and lows not dipping beyond the mid-40s all week.

Temperatures dipped below freezing for awhile Saturday morning at the National Weather Service's recording station at Lee Gilmer Memorial Airport but rebounded into the mid-50s by afternoon under clear skies.
