For Canoers/Boaters: Sunday Looks The Best

Looks like a bit of an unsettled day across PA and into the DC Region as showers and storms should occur. Some of these storms could be severe, with the main risks being heavy downpours and damaging winds. Small hail is also possible as the chance of a tornado is little to none. The chance of spotty showers and storms will persist into Thursday before conditions start to try and dry out Friday. A cool down will take place for the late work week before temperatures start to warm up during the weekend. A nice Saturday and Sunday is in store for much of the region. We’re halfway there til the holiday weekend folks. Have a good day!
