Temperatures will rebound over the weekend around Philly, but it will not be a long-lasting trend.

After a cold, but tranquil Saturday with a high in the 20s, temperatures will reach into the 40s on Sunday.

It's shaping up to be a dry and cold night for folks heading to Lincoln Financial Field to watch the Eagles host the Saints Saturday evening. Temperatures are forecast to hover in the 20s.

Clouds will move in for Sunday as the second half of the weekend features the next chance for rain.

Bitter arctic air will blast across the region for the start of next week. The warmest part of the day Monday will be first thing in the morning. Temperatures will fall through the 20s in the afternoon and will then dive into the single digits Monday night.

Highs are forecast to be in the lower teens on Monday.

This bitter cold can make it dangerous to be outside for extended periods of time. If you plan on spending time in the outdoors early next week, make sure to wear the proper clothing to protect yourself from the bitter cold.
