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

Pittsburgh will experience a break from the current chill at midweek, but with the milder temperatures will also come rain.

Cool air will remain in place across southwestern Pennsylvania through Monday, sending temperatures in Pittsburgh into the 20s Sunday night and holding Monday's highs to just shy of 50 degrees.

A break in the chill will come on Tuesday with temperatures rebounding to the upper 50s.

Further warming on Wednesday will cause temperatures to approach 65 degrees.

Umbrellas can be left at home through Wednesday with dry weather in control.

The warming will occur ahead of a cold front that is set to return rain and gusty winds to western Pennsylvania on Thursday.

While widespread wind damage is not expected, wind gusts could become briefly strong enough Thursday morning for isolated tree damage and power outages as the storm's cold front passes through.

In the front's wake, another blast of colder air and brisk winds will follow for late week.
