The East Should Be Called Pleasantville With These Temperatures

Looking like a pleasant next couple of days as dry conditions stick around for the most part. A cooler morning currently as parts of NW PA are only 14 degrees above freezing right now. A slight chance of an isolated shower could occur in NW PA this morning, but most of the region should see some sunshine. Friday will be gorgeous with mostly sunny skies spanning the region before Saturday brings in more clouds and a chance of showers/storms to western PA. Highs in the 70s will be the consensus across much of western PA over the next 3 days while the DC Region sees low to mid 80s. It’s Thursday. Ride the bus down the hill into the weekend. Enjoy folks!
