Chilly Morning, Then Let the Weekend Thaw Out Commence.

Posted on
I know it has been a long week, but we have made it folks! It’s Friday! What is better than just a Friday? A Friday that stays dry with some sunshine involved. Looks like western PA will see plenty of cloud cover today, but some peeks of sunshine are possible during the day. Saturday looks to stay dry overall, although a slight chance of showers could move into NW PA later in the day and into the night. A chance of rain and snow will push in on Sunday. Highs will reach into the 20s today as upper 10s to mid 20s hold steady during the night. Highs in the mid 30s to low 40s will push in on Saturday before lows dip into the mid to upper 30s Saturday night. Highs in the  upper 30s to mid 40s will push in on Sunday before lows fall off into the 20s Sunday night. The DC Region will stay dry during the weekend as mostly sunny skies today give way to party cloudy skies tomorrow. Clouds will continue to increase on Sunday before a chance of showers moves in Sunday night. Highs in the mid to upper 30s today will rise into the mid to upper 40s tomorrow before mid to upper 50s push in on Sunday. Lows in the mid 20s to low 30s tonight will bump up into the mid 30s tomorrow before upper 30s to low 40s push in Sunday night. Hope you all have a fantastic weekend. May be a good weekend to open the windows for a little bit to get some fresh air into your home. Take care folks!
