“…I Want Him Brought Right Here, With a Big Ribbon on His Head…”

Posted on
Hope everyone’s ready for the weekend, because warmer temperatures and drier conditions are expected overall. Looks like a lot of places got snow yesterday, with Erie County winning with over 6″ of snow in a lot of locations. Conditions will start to dry out today as a ridge starts to build in the region. Partly sunny skies are expected through the weekend as some areas could see some drizzle or spitting rain late Sunday night. Highs will hold in the 30s today and tomorrow before low to mid 40s settle in on Sunday. Lows in the 20s tonight will rise into the low 30s tomorrow night as 30s hold into Sunday night. The DC Region will stay dry as mostly sunny skies settle in for the weekend. Highs in the mid to upper 40s and lows in the 30s will stick around. Hope you all have a fantastic weekend! Take care folks!
