The unseasonably warm weather that the Northeast has been experiencing isn't here to stay. Or as Jersey Shore meteorologist Steve DiMartino put it: "Winter isn't canceled."

The winter warmup isn't unusual, DiMartino said, noting weather typically swings from one extreme to the other.

And a colder weather is on the horizon, according to AccuWeather.

While temps have stayed mostly in the 50s since the frigid Christmas weekend, they're bound to take a dip back into the 40s for the second week of January, the outlet says.

Much of Pennsylvania, the Baltimore region and the northwestern-most points of New Jersey could see snow or a wintry mix Saturday through Monday, however, the larger likelihood of snow for the region will be on Jan. 11 or 12, AccuWeather Lead Long-Range Meteorologist Paul Pastelok said.

"As more energy from the Western states feeds eastward and provided a stronger dip in the jet stream forms inland from the Atlantic coast next week," Pastelok said.
