Sunday turned out to be a beautiful day for Philadelphia, but the nice weather will end with the weekend.

Residents of Philadelphia enjoyed a good deal of sunshine and comfortable temperatures in the 70s on Sunday.

Temperatures will remain mild into Monday, but sunglasses will be replaced with umbrellas.

As the storm system closing out the weekend on a windy and stormy note across the Midwest shifts eastward, clouds will block out the sun most of Monday across Philadelphia and a couple of showers and thunderstorms will rumble. Steadier rain will develop east of Philadelphia in the afternoon.

Sunshine will return for Tuesday, but the unseasonable warmth will be gone. Temperatures will instead warm to a more seasonable high of 65 degrees.
