Much Relief On the Way…Just Not Tomorrow Morning or Today

A chilly next couple of days before a warm up occurs into the weekend. Gusty winds will also make conditions feel quite cold today into Thursday morning as wind chills could drop to below 0 tomorrow morning. Dry conditions will persist through most of Thursday before a threat of rain moves into the region overnight into Friday and into the weekend. Highs will reach into the 40s and 50s in western PA Friday through early next week. The DC region will warm up into the 50s and 60s. Enjoy the warmer temperatures after today and early tomorrow but stay dry. Take care folks!
