Warm weather will continue around Harrisburg, Pa., through the weekend and into Monday, which is good news for those looking for ideal outdoor conditions.

Highs will be in the upper 60s to the lower 70s Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

A couple of showers are possible during the day Friday with the chance of a few hours of steady rain Friday night.

Dry weather is forecast to return this weekend, including the Harrisburg 5K and the Garden Spot Village Marathon at New Holland, Pa., on Saturday. There is also the Spring Thaw Man Cave and Brewery Collectibles Show at Mechanicsburg, Pa., on Saturday.

The weather will be great for fishing on Saturday as thousands of anglers take to streams and lakes to seek out millions of stocked trout on opening day for much of Pennsylvania.

A balmy breeze is forecast on Monday with enough sunshine to drive temperatures well into the 70s. A few locations may touch 80 F on Monday. For much of the Northeast, Monday will be the warmest day since early October.
