A Day or Two of Warmth Left. Then the Weather Treadmill Enters “Cool Down Mode.”

It’s Wednesday! We’ve made it through the middle of the week. Congratulations! Looks like clouds stick around throughout the day today before showers and storms move into western PA first overnight tonight and then into the DC Region on Thursday. These showers and storms will move out of the region on Friday before another risk of wet weather tracks in on Saturday. Highs in the upper 70s to low 80s in western PA will start to cool down tomorrow into the upper 60s and 70s before 60s settle in on Friday. Lows in the 60s tonight will drop into the 50s on Thursday night before potential for upper 40s moves in Friday night. The DC Region will see low 80s today before rising into the low 90s on Thursday. A cool down into the mid to upper 70s will occur into Friday. Lows in the low 70s tonight will drop into the mid 60s tomorrow night before low 60s settle in by early Saturday morning. Enjoy the warmth while it lasts! It’s Hump Day. Get over it! Have a good one folks!
