I’m Feeling Hot Hot Hot. Hot Weather Moves in For Second Half of the Week. So Does A Chance of Showers and Storms.

Posted on

We’ve made it halfway through the week folks. It looks like clouds will gradually increase in western PA today before a chance of a shower or storm could develop into the afternoon hours. Nothing too steady though. Partly sunny skies are expected on Thursday as a slight chance of isolated showers is possible. A chance of isolated showers and thunderstorms are possible on Friday, mainly during the afternoon and evening. Highs will climb into the low to mid 80s today as 80s hold steady into Thursday. Mid 80s to low 90s will track in on Friday. Lows will dip into the mid to upper 60s tonight and Thursday night before upper 60s to low 70s press in on Friday night. The DC Region will look at mostly sunny skies today before partly cloudy skies and a slight chance of an isolated shower or storm could develop on Thursday. A chance of showers and storms could move in later on Friday as well. Highs will peak in the mid to upper 80s today before low to mid 90s push in on Thursday and Friday. Lows will dip in the low to mid 70s tonight before mid to upper 70s hold steady on Thursday night and Friday night. It’s hump day. Get over it! Have a good one folks!
