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

Dry days will be hard to come by with showers and thunderstorms forecast to become routine around Philadelphia this week.

That is not to say that this week will be a complete washout. There will be breaks of rain-free weather, but meteorologists cannot promise an entirely rain-free day.

There will be a push of dry air across New England on Wednesday, but that push may be too weak and too far away to guarantee a day free of rain. Wednesday is the least likely day for widespread showers and thunderstorms around Philadelphia.
