High pressure will build across the mid-Atlantic overnight allowing for mainly clear skies and temperatures in the 30s and middle 40s. The coldest temperatures will be in the Shenandoah Valley and the Potomac Highlands.

The start of the work and school week will bring the coolest afternoon temperatures so far this month. By afternoon, temperatures will only manage to rebound to the upper 50s to lower 60s under mostly cloudy skies. Since the growing season has started, a frost and freeze concern becomes more widespread late Monday night and early Tuesday morning. Areas west of Interstate 95 will see the greatest chance for areas of frost.
