After taking the plunge into Friday night, temperatures will rebound around Harrisburg, only to plunge again early next week.

The swings in temperature will make it hard for some people to adjust and can lead to melting and refreezing issues, that leave icy spots on roads and sidewalks.

Temperatures on Sunday will surge into the 30s, ahead of another push of Arctic air for early next week.

The front can produce a wintry mix changing to rain on Sunday, followed by a flash freeze Monday morning and midday.

After plummeting to near zero Monday night, the high on Tuesday is projected to be in the single digits.
