Warm Today. Rain Friday. Much Colder Weekend.

Posted on
Looks like the warmth continues today before rain tracks into the region on Friday and lingers on Saturday. Sadly for western PA it looks like the back edge of this low pressure system moving through will keep a chance of showers in the region during the weekend. The DC Region will see conditions dry out during the weekend. Highs in the low to mid 70s in western PA are expected the next couple days. Temperatures will be much cooler Saturday as afternoon highs in the low to mid 50s occur on Saturday. Lows in the upper 50s tonight will drop into the mid to upper 40s Friday night. Mid 30s will move in overnight into early Sunday morning. The DC Region will see highs hold in the 70s the next couple days before Saturday afternoon only sees mid to upper 60s. Lows in the 60s the next couple nights will drop into the low to mid 40s by early Sunday morning. Enjoy the last bits of warmth before conditions cool down significantly. Have a good one!
