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

While waves of cold air and snowflakes will reach the Appalachians in the upcoming days, real chill and snow are still a little way off for Philadelphia.

Fresh cool air will arrive for Sunday with highs in the lower 60s.

However, with the sun out Monday, temperatures will rebound.

As additional waves of cold air bringing some snow showers flow through the Midwest, some chilly air will break across the Appalachians during the middle and latter part of the upcoming week.

The pattern later next week can produce the lowest daytime temperatures of the season throughout the region, along with the lowest nighttime temperatures for the city.

Highs most days next Thursday through next Sunday are likely to be in the 50s with nighttime lows in the 30s.

No snow is in the offing through the end of October for the city, but there is the potential for even colder air with gusty winds around the end of the month.
