Mild weather is in store for the latter park of weekend around Harrisburg, Pa., with temperatures rising into the lower 50s.

The warmth will continue to reduce the snow cover gradually throughout the region, as well as the giant piles of snow at shopping malls and along the borders of streets. Sudden fluctuations are possible on the Susquehanna River as ice may begin to break and shift.

This mild pattern will soon come to an end.
