    Harrisburg: Rain, Fog and Thunderstorms to Accompany Mild Weather

    A break from the cold, snowy weather is in store for much of the balance of this week around Harrisburg, Pa., but some problems are possible.

    Temperatures are forecast to reach the 40s Thursday and the 50s Friday and Saturday.

    Due to the extensive snow cover and the cold ground, the pattern will pose some problems.

    Temperatures will dip to or below freezing in some communities through midweek. Motorists and pedestrians should be on the lookout for areas of black ice, especially since ice-melting chemicals are becoming scarce.

    Along with the mild weather and cold ground will come areas of fog. The fog could be dense enough at times in parts of the Midwest, South and East to cause flight delays.

    A potent storm moving through late in the week will boost the chance of fog and raise the likelihood of rain. The same system may bring a thunderstorm and locally strong winds.

    At this time, it appears severe weather will stay south of the region, thanks in part to the snow cover, cold ground and cold ocean.

    Enough melting will occur this week to bring the risk of street and highway flooding. At this time, flooding along the Susquehanna River is not expected.
