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

While several mild days are in store for this week, Philadelphia also faces a soaking.

Clouds will quickly increase on Monday and rain will arrive in the afternoon as a storm from the Gulf of Mexico tracks northeastward.

Baseball fans will not be happy to hear that the rain threatens to ruin the Phillies' home opener.

The rain will persist, heavily at times, through the first part of Monday night with amounts on the order of around an inch.

Widespread flash flooding is not expected, but there could be isolated issues in poor drainage areas. The main impacts of the rain will be an increased use in umbrellas, as well as slow downs and reduced visibility for motorists.

A morning shower is still possible on Tuesday. Most residents will likely pay more attention to temperatures rebounding to around 65 F.

Blustery winds will usher in cooler air for Wednesday, but another surge of warmth later in the week could bring Philadelphia its warmest day so far this year.
