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

Warmth will hold around Harrisburg through Monday, but the return of much colder air is on the horizon.

Sunday will be the warmest of the next couple of days and so far this year with temperatures expected to rise past the 80-degree mark. Dry weather and a sunny to partly cloudy sky will compliment the warmth.

As some more clouds filter overhead, temperatures will still rise well into the 70s on Monday.

Chilly air plunging into the Plains will swing eastward in the upcoming days.

After blissful springtime temperatures over much of the region on Monday, rain will put the brakes on the warming trend on Tuesday.
