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

Despite a rebound in temperatures on Monday, a late-week Novemberlike chill is headed to Philadelphia.

High pressure promoted a good deal of sunshine over Philadelphia and mild afternoon temperatures on Monday.

The mild trend will continue through Tuesday before cold air from Canada works its way to the Northeast coast on Wednesday, holding high temperatures that day to the middle 50s.

A storm along the leading edge of the cold blast could bring a bit of rain to the city Tuesday night through Wednesday, especially during the morning hours of Wednesday.

The chill that follows for Thursday and Friday will create daytime highs near 54 degrees with nighttime lows within a couple degrees of 40. RealFeel® temperatures will be even colder as brisk winds blow.

The first snowflakes of the season are also headed to the Appalachians this week and will remain west of Philadelphia.

There are signs that even colder air, accompanied by gusty winds, will reach the city around the end of the month.
