Heater problems

This is on a 2005 wrangler LJ guys and with winter coming and two little kiddos I gotta get this fixed. I've searched on here a little this morning but this has got me stumped. Anyways here we GOOOO
Ok here goes. Found first winter issue with the jeep. My heater blows WARM air not hot. I let it run for about 15 mins. Then drove it home. I noticed it never got hot so I drove it around longer. Still no change in temp. So I went back to the house and let it sit and run. This has been a total of 50 mins now. The temp gauge is reading 210 and has been for a while. The air temp at the floor and defrost vents is still only warm. So while it was running I popped the hood and felt of the hoses. The heater core hoses were warm not hot which is good. Checked the upper radiator hose. Warm not hot which I thought was odd. HEY I just noticed my other hand was on the radiator cap. NOT HOT at all. So yep with the engine running and has been running for a full hour now. I'm like f$@k it. I opened the radiator cap. Nothing no steam blow off no water spraying so I stuck my finger in the water. Guess what ONLY warm. Not HOW IN THE HELL can that be when my thermostat temp is reading 210??? I'm pulling a major head scratcher here guys. WTF is the problem.
