Play video The above video details Northeast weather early this week.

Tranquil weather will grip the Harrisburg area this week as the area remains free of any significant weather systems.

A cold front slowly trekking from the west will fizzle out across the area early this week bringing a few clouds to the region but remaining dry. Temperatures will remain seasonable on Monday, topping out in the lower 70s.

Sunnier conditions will return by the middle of the week. With the sunshine, temperatures will increase as well.

Temperatures will be rather warm for this time of the year with afternoon highs in the upper 70s and overnight lows in the upper 50s Tuesday. However, it will turn even warmer Wednesday and Thursday as AccuWeather RealFeel temperatures approach the mid-80s during the afternoons.
