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

The week is starting on a cool note, but the return of warmer air is on the horizon.

While the storm responsible for the weekend showers will be gone from Pittsburgh, another system will deliver yet another shower to the city on Monday.

The accompanying clouds will hold temperatures to the upper 50s, which is about 10 degrees lower than normal.

For those heading to PNC Park on Monday evening to watch the Pirates take on the San Francisco Giants, the showers should be gone before the game's first pitch.

Clouds may also break enough for those away from the lights of the city to view the peak of the Eta Aquarid Meteor Shower just before dawn on Tuesday.

The return of more sunshine on Tuesday will allow temperatures to rebound to the upper 60s.

Temperatures will finally return back to the 70s on Wednesday. The passage of a warm front and a thunderstorm in the afternoon will open the door for even warmer air to pour in.

Highs in the 80s are expected for both Thursday and Friday. Thursday should actually become Pittsburgh's warmest day so far this year.

Dry weather and a mixture of sunshine and clouds will compliment Thursday's warmth for those wishing to get outside and enjoy the early taste of summer.

The same cannot be said for Friday with showers and thunderstorms set to rumble.
