Hey Mr. Scott, Whatcha Gonna Do? Whatcha Gonna Do, Make Our Dreams Come True!

Afternoon temperatures reached 77 in Pittsburgh yesterday while DC only saw 61. Reasoning: Backdoor cold front bringing rain and onshore flow. Wetness will linger into early today in the DC Region as mostly cloudy skies hang out for the day. Luckily dryness will set in by the weekend giving way for a nice Saturday and Sunday. Western PA will continue to see dry weather as mostly sunny skies persist throughout the weekend. Highs in the 70s and low 80s will occur during the weekend for the region. It’s Friday. Go hiking, canoeing, or camping. It’s a great weekend for it. Have a fantastic few days off folks!
