Posted on

It is Tuesday and what better way to start with the risk of showers lingering in the region through this morning before conditions dry out into the afternoon. The DC Region will see mostly sunny skies on Wednesday while partly cloudy skies linger occur in western PA and a chance of showers and storms moves in during the afternoon or evening hours. A chance of isolated showers and storms could continue into Thursday in western PA while DC holds onto partly cloudy skies with a slight risk of a pop-up shower or storm. Western PA will climb into the 70s today before low to mid 80s track in on Wednesday and Thursday. Lows will drop into the mid 50s to low 60s tonight before mid to upper 60s push in on Wednesday night. Upper 50s to mid 60s will push in on Thursday night. The DC Region will see highs in the upper 80s today and Wednesday before low to mid 90s track in on Thursday. Lows will dip into the mid 60s to low 70s tonight before upper 60s move in on Wednesday night and low to mid 70s press in on Thursday night. Have a great two-for-Tuesday folks!
