Default Heat stopped working!

I have a 1997 Camaro Z28 and for most of the winter the heat worked great! For some reason recently the air doesn't get hot anymore. The fan is still blowing air but not nearly as warm as it should be. The engine will warm up to its regular operating temp and the air is cool. When I turn the dial all the way to cold it gets freezing and when I turn it to hot it barely gets warmer. Any suggestions on what the issue may be?

heater core lines probably do not have any coolant in them... check the crossover tube for proper coolant.

yes, those are the lines, there should be a place to unhook them towards the front of the engine, just follow them out then stick a hose in there and blast it out forwards and backwards.
