Monday's dry and mild weather in Harrisburg is not a sign of things to come for this week.
Clouds will increase across the Harrisburg area on Monday, but temperatures will be trending in the opposite direction than on Sunday.
Instead of cooler air arriving, a southerly breeze will pump in milder air that will push temperatures to the 50-degree mark.

The end of the dry spell will coincide with sunset Monday as some rain will move through Monday night.
A bit of the rain may linger into Tuesday morning with clouds winning out over sunshine this day. The air will still be warmer than normal with a high in the upper 40s expected.
The air will not be cold enough for the rain to mix with or change to snow.
