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

Although jackets were not necessary for the weekend and Monday, a rain jacket will be needed Tuesday through Tuesday night.

Rain will return and the mild spell will dramatically end on Tuesday as a blast of colder air sweeping in from the Plains arrives. The heaviest rain will arrive in the morning.

While Tuesday's rain is not expected to cause widespread flooding issues around the city, postponements to outdoor activities and slow travel are likely to result.

Temperatures on Tuesday will only top out at the lower 60s and will fall into the 50s in the afternoon.

An even colder Wednesday will unfold despite the departure of the rain and some sun returning. Temperatures will struggle to climb much above the 50-degree mark.

More seasonable highs are expected by Friday.
