As a storm brings everything from snow and ice to flooding and tornadoes to parts of the nation this weekend, less violent weather is in the offing around Harrisburg.

The only major travel concern locally is for areas of dense fog Saturday night, then gusty winds Sunday.

Occasional rain will fall through Sunday around the metro area.

Temperatures are forecast to reach record high levels this weekend. The existing record high on Sunday at Harrisburg is 64 degrees set in 1949.

Much colder air will sweep back into the region Monday night, Tuesday and into Christmas Day.

There is chance of flurries Tuesday into Tuesday night. A few spots could get a dusting of snow by Christmas.
