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

A break from Sunday's storms around Pittsburgh will come for the start of the new week before the storminess resumes at midweek.

While a couple of showers and thunderstorms disrupt outdoor plans across parts of the Northeast Monday and Tuesday, drier air will work into western Pennsylvania these days and keep Pittsburgh dry.

Baseball fans planning to head to PNC Park to watch the Pirates take on the Chicago Cubs Monday evening do not have to worry about a weather-related delay.

The drier air will erase the storminess from Sunday but will not bring a dramatic reduction in humidity.

Temperatures on Monday are expected to rise into the middle 70s before returning to the 80-degree mark on Tuesday.
