“The Blessing!”

Looks like conditions should stay mainly dry over the next 3 days with a chance of some scattered light snow in western PA possible today and possibly early tomorrow. Highs in western PA will stick in the 30s through the early weekend while lows hold in the low to mid 20s. Some areas in NW PA could dip into the 10s. The DC Region will hold in the low to mid 40s for highs while lows fall off into the low 30s. As for a white Christmas, western PA could see some flakes flying. The DC Region looks less likely. Still about a week for this to change though. Hope you all have a fantastic Thursday! Take care and enjoy!
