Hey Low Pressure System, You Can Leave The Party Now

Posted on
It’s Thursday! 1 more day before the weekend for many of us. Another wet morning for today before conditions try to dry out later on. The chance of showers will hang on in PA on Friday and Saturday while the DC Region should remain fairly dry overall. Temperatures will hold relatively steady over the next 3 days. This low pressure system that has been lingering in the region will continue to spin to the north, keeping a chance of wet weather into next week for the Northeast. Have a good Thursday and a better weekend!
