Play video Weather across the Northeast is detailed in the above AccuWeather.com video.

The midwinter chill that moved into the area this week will remain a distant memory this weekend.

The tranquil weather will compliment walks to nearby parks and restaurants. It would be a great time for sightseers to visit the monuments and everything else the city has to offer.

However, an umbrella could come in handy.

Aside from a couple of passing showers, much of Sunday will be free of rain and very mild. The day will start with patchy fog reducing visibility for motorists.

High temperatures on Sunday will rise into the middle to upper 60s.

An advancing storm will bring a couple of showers and thunderstorms to the city Sunday night.
