“The Little Lights Aren’t Twinkling, Clark.”

Hope everyone had a fantastic holiday weekend and that everyone made it safely to where they were going! Looks like a bit of a wet start to the work week as a chance of showers holds on through the middle of the week across the region. A chance of wintry mix could also occur on Tuesday and into early Wednesday. Temperatures will decline throughout the day today in western PA as afternoon highs only hold in the 30s as mid 30s and low 40s occur into Tuesday. Wednesday will allow for highs to bump back up into the 40s. Lows in the 20s and 30s are expected. The DC Region will see highs in the 60s today before highs decline into the 40s on Tuesday. 50s will return on Wednesday. Lows in the upper 30s and low 40s are expected. I know it’s Monday, but you still might have some leftovers to eat to help with that. Take care folks!
