Posted on
We’re on the back half of the week now as mainly dry weather continues in the region today. A slight risk of an isolated shower or thunderstorm is possible in the DC Region, however. A chance of isolated showers and storms will pick up later on Friday before Saturday looks likely for showers and storms to track through. Conditions should dry out by the late weekend and into the start of the next work week. Highs will hold in the 80s in western PA the next couple of days before dropping into the upper 60s and 70s by Saturday. The DC Region will reach the upper 80s today before breaking into the 90s on Friday and Saturday. Lows will hold in the 60s in western PA the next two nights before upper 40s and 50s move in Saturday night into early Sunday morning. The DC Region will see low to mid 70s the next couple nights before 60s settle in on Sunday. Have a great Thursday folks! Enjoy yourself!
