Back To the Old Grindstone

Posted on
I am back after a wonderful vacation that was too short. Looking like this morning will stay dry before a chance of rain moves in later today and into tonight. The threat of showers and thunderstorms will continue into at least the middle of the week as a low pressure system lingers in the region. Temperatures will be relatively cool but comfortable with highs in the 50s and 60s and some areas in southwest PA and the DC Region reaching the low 70s by Wednesday. Lows will stay warmer than normal due to cloud coverage and moisture at night. Kind of an ugly middle of the week. Stay dry and have a good week folks!
