Enjoy the brief stretch of pleasant conditions in the Northeast. This mild weather pattern is going to come to an end by the middle of the week with a soggier forecast in the future.

Here is what you need to know about the upcoming change in the weather for the northeastern corner of the country.

Pleasant Start to the Week in the Northeast Will Not Last

The week will get off a nice start for the Northeast as the mercury inches upward and the rain stays away. The dry conditions will be a nice break after the wet and dreary weather that had impacted the area last week.

Several communities in the Ohio Valley and over into the coastal regions of the mid-Atlantic saw widespread rainfall accumulations of 2 to 4 inches with some pockets picking up 5 inches of rain or greater.

Some parts of New England even picked up significant snow out of last week's weather maker. High winds also made for treacherous travel for the Great Lakes and up into Maine.

The start of this week will usher in dry and calm conditions thanks to a large area of high pressure that is building over the southeastern corner of Canada and down through the eastern U.S. In addition to drier conditions, the temperatures will also be on the upswing.

For instance, the mercury will climb into the 70s for the mid-Atlantic region on Tuesday, approximately 10 to 15 degrees above the historical average for the first week of April. This will be in contrast to the highs in the 40s and 50s that were recorded last week.
