Another Cold Couple Days. Weekend and Monday Will Feel Balmy In Comparison.

Cold conditions will remain the next couple days before temperatures recover to near or above normal values during the weekend and Monday. A chance of lake-effect snow will continue in NW PA today and tomorrow especially near Erie. A chance of freezing rain may occur on Saturday morning in western PA before conditions warm up and rain moves in. Highs will rise into the mid to upper 20s the next couple days in western PA before 30s and 40s move in on Saturday. Lows in the teens the next couple nights will rise into the upper 30s and 40s Saturday night. In the DC Region expect conditions to stay dry the next 3 days. Highs in the 40s today will drop into the mid to upper 30s tomorrow before 40s return on Saturday. Lows in the 20s the next couple nights will rise into the 30s by Saturday night. Hope you all have a great day. We’re almost to the weekend! Take care!
