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

While the weekend started on a wet and mild note, drier air will work into Washington, D.C., for Sunday. Frigid air will not.

Until the rain departs early Saturday evening, there is the potential for urban flooding and travel delays.

In the wake of the storm, dry weather will end the weekend and it will turn cooler, but not colder immediately. This is because the source of the air moving in Sunday will be from the Pacific Ocean.

However, gusty winds could cause some delays at airports in the Northeast on Sunday.

Colder air will return in stages with the first not due in until Wednesday or Thursday. Before that, temperatures will rise into the lower 50s both Monday and Tuesday.
