Storminess Continues. Nice Weekend Ahead.

Severe storms tracked through the region yesterday, especially through western PA as plenty of wind damage occurred. Bedford County, PA may have seen a potential tornado. Today looks to keep the threat of showers and storms around,  but severe weather is not as likely. Friday will keep the risk of wet weather in the region before mostly sunny skies grace the region this weekend. Highs in the 70s and 80s will continue into the weekend. Have a great Thursday!

Good Nap Week

I don’t know about you, but this weekend went to fast and I’m feeling a bit tired this morning. Luckily, the weather will be good for afternoon naps this week as a wetter pattern settles into the region. However, there may be some thunder that could wake you up as a chance of scattered showers and storms moves in for much of this week. Highs in the 70s and 80s are expected throughout the entire week with potential for 90s in the DC Region on Wednesday. Not the greatest week to be outside, but if you like sleep and thunderstorms you’ll be a happy camper. Have a fantastic day and week!

Ithaca Is Gorges…and So Is the Weekend.

It is one of those weekends that makes you want to blast U2 while putting on your Bono-like sunglasses singing “Bono and The Edge” with every refrain. It’s also a weekend to get outside. Mostly sunny skies the next couple of days before clouds increase on Sunday and showers/thunderstorms move into the region later on Sunday. Highs will peak in the 70s and 80s throughout the region. Cover up the Xbox and TV with cloth like they do the statues at church during Lent and go outside. Have a fantastic weekend in the sun!
