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 Philadelphia.

The only major travel concern locally is for gusty winds on Sunday.

Very little rain will fall through Sunday around the tri-state area.

Temperatures are forecast to reach record high levels on Sunday.

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. However, there is not likely to be any snow on the ground for Christmas Day.
