For Goodness Sake, Let’s Eat Some Cake

The next 3 days should stay near or above normal for this time of year before another cool down takes place through the weekend and into next week. Models are in a bit of a disagreement with how much cold air filters in next week, but after the recent cold shot and a building ridge in the west the cooler risks outweigh the warm risks. For the next 3 days, clouds will increase today in western PA before rain moves in late tonight and the threat continues into Thursday. DC will see dry conditions today and most of tomorrow before the best chance of showers moves in Wednesday night and Thursday. Highs in the 50s and 60s today in western PA will dip into through Thursday. Lows in the 30s and 40s will occur. Highs in the DC Region will sit in the upper 60s to low 70s the next couple days before dipping into the low to mid 60s by Thursday. Lows in the 40s and 50s will occur. Hope you all have a great two-for-Tuesday! Take care!
