“Is It Tuesday? Bluesday? Better-Wear-Shoesday?”

Looking like rain moves in a bit earlier than anticipated today for western PA. Showers possible early on in the day before a risk of thunderstorms could move in this afternoon into tonight. The threat of rain will persist into Wednesday before starting to dry out Thursday. For DC, clouds will increase throughout the day today before a threat of showers and storms moves in overnight and into Wednesday. Lingering precipitation could occur on Thursday before drying out. Temperatures will stay comfortable as 60s and 70s occur in western PA and 70s/Low 80s hold on in the DC Region. Early part of Memorial Day Weekend could see some wetness before drying out into Monday. Have a great two-for-Tuesday! Enjoy folks!
