Heavy Rains Possible. Flash Gordon…I Mean Flooding Also Possible.

The threat of showers and thunderstorms will continue in the region today and tomorrow. Some of these storms could bring heavy rains and flash flooding. Conditions will dry out on Saturday for the DC Region while western PA could see a chance of showers linger in the region. Highs in the 80s today in DC will drop into the upper 60s and 70s into the weekend. Highs in the 60s and 70s in western PA today will drop into the 50s and 60s through the weekend. Conditions should stay on the cool side into early next week as drier weather starts to shuffle back in. It’s Thursday. You’re almost there. Have a good one!

Who Enjoyed The Beautiful Weather Yesterday?

Looks like a dreary Saturday before Sunday stays mainly dry. Temperatures will remain in the 70s and 80s for the most part through early to mid next week.
