Spring is almost here and the weather will acknowledge this for a few days at least around Harrisburg, Pa.

Temperatures will rebound into the 50s on Thursday as spring officially arrives in the afternoon.

The first full day of spring, Friday will be seasonable with some sunshine and a high in the 50s.

Some rain may return to the area on Saturday.

Even though the region will be officially done with winter, the weather may not abide by change of seasons.

Another system is being watched for possible snow during the middle of next week over the mid-Atlantic and central Appalachians in general. However, at this early stage, the track, the dividing line between rain and snow and the magnitude of the storm are uncertain.

Regardless of the storm potential, cold air will return next week.
