A mild weekend is in store, but Sunday will be rainy and rather stormy around Philadelphia.

The sunny weather from Saturday will not last into Sunday as heavy rain will move in.

The rain threatens to slow travelers, including those heading home from their Christmas destinations.

Due to the warmer air, there is not a threat of Sunday's rain starting as or ending as snow in Philadelphia. The same cannot be said for the higher elevations of northern and central Pennsylvania.

Rain is expected to end by Monday as temperatures hover in the 40s. However, a cold front will bring noticeably cooler air in for the hours of the year on Tuesday as afternoon temperatures struggle to reach past freezing.

The weather for the Mummers Parade will be blustery and cold with temperatures no higher than the 20s, but RealFeel® temperatures will be in teens.
