Milder air will surge across the Harrisburg area on Monday, but a cold front and its showers will put the brakes on the warmup by midweek.

Following a comfortable Easter Sunday, temperatures will soar back into the lower 70s on Monday.

Rain-free conditions and a sunny to partly cloudy sky will compliment the warmth, creating another great day to be outdoors.

An even warmer Tuesday will unfold along the I-95 corridor ahead of a cold front.

For Harrisburg, temperatures will be held a few degrees below Monday's high since the front and its clouds and showers will arrive early enough to prevent further warming.

Temperatures will then take a more significant tumble in the front's wake, leading to a high of near 60 F on Wednesday. A brisk wind will create even lower AccuWeather.com RealFeel® temperatures.

A quick rebound in temperatures will follow for Thursday.
