Cooler Temperatures on the Way

The stormy pattern will continue today and tomorrow as a front slowly pushes through. Severe weather is possible across southern PA and the DC Region today as heavy downpours and damaging straight-line winds are the main threat. Behind the front is drier air but also a strong cool down for this time of year. Highs in the 70s/80s today in western PA will drop into the 60s and 70s by the middle of the week. Highs in the 90s today in DC will drop into the low to mid 80s by Wednesday. Lows could drop into the 40s in NW PA by the middle of the week. You won’t have to dig up the winter gloves yet, but temperatures will be well below normal. Have a good Monday and an even better week! Take care!
