The dry end to the weekend in Harrisburg will not persist for the rest of this week.

Hopefully those who enjoy spending time outdoors took advantage of Sunday's weather.

Some rain will spread back across the city Monday afternoon through Tuesday, threatening to put a damper on or ruin outdoor activities.

Tuesday will be the cooler of these two days with temperatures set to be held to the 50s. Brisk winds will create even lower AccuWeather.com RealFeel® temperatures.

Heavier periods of rain and thunderstorms will follow for Wednesday and Wednesday night, heightening concerns for flash flooding and cause slowdowns for travelers.

Despite the rain and thunderstorms, the door will open for warmer air to pour in on Wednesday and boost temperatures back to the 60s.

The return of even more sunshine on Thursday should allow May to start on a warm note with highs in the lower 70s. A lingering shower will keep the city unsettled.
