It is Friday: “The Day of Ice Cube”

Posted on
We made it to another Friday, but sadly the weather this weekend won’t cooperate. The best threat of rain will move in on Saturday, bringing a sloppy start to the Penn State home opener, especially later in the game. This risk of rain will linger in the DC Region on Sunday while western PA dries out but cools down. Highs in the 80s in western PA today will drop into the 70s through the rest of the weekend. The DC Region will see 90s the next couple days before low 80s settle in on Sunday. Lows in the 60s tonight in western PA will drop into the upper 40s and 50s Saturday and Sunday night. Lows in the 70s tonight in DC will fall into the 60s on Saturday and Sunday night. Sit back, relax, and enjoy your weekend! Take care folks!
