Temperatures will remain on the rise in Harrisburg, giving way to a mild Easter weekend.

The cold air that blasted into Harrisburg on Tuesday is being replaced by progressively warmer air.

Further warming will occur on Saturday, leading to a high in the lower 60s.

Temperatures will rise a few more degrees on Easter Sunday, eclipsing the 65-degree mark.

Rain-free and mostly sunny conditions will complement the weather both days, allowing Easter egg hunts and other festivities to go on as scheduled.
