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

A blast of cold air will continue to chill those in Harrisburg through Monday.

Gone are the temperatures that warmed into the 60s on Saturday.

A noticeably colder Sunday has instead unfolded and will be followed by temperatures dropping into the 20s Sunday night, challenging the record low of 24 degrees from 1951.

Those with plants still sitting on their porches will want to move them indoors before heading to bed.

The chill will continue on Monday, when temperatures will fail to rise out of the upper 40s.

The good news is that there will not be a large temperature difference in actual and RealFeel® temperatures on Monday with less wind present and plenty of sunshine in control.
