Warmer Morning Overall. Chance of Snow Continues in Western PA Today/Early Tomorrow. DC Chance of Rain/Snow Tonight/Tomorrow. Much Colder Tomorrow.

Posted on
Looks like a much warmer morning across the region as western PA is 15-20° warmer this morning than yesterday morning and the DC Region is 5 to 10° warmer. Looks like early snow across NW PA has shifted to the east for now before another round of snow moves in later tonight. SW PA will see a mix of rain and snow later today. The risk of snow will carry into early Thursday before conditions dry out into Friday. 2-5″ of snow is possible in NW PA today and early Thursday, with higher amounts near Erie. Highs in the 30s today in western PA will decline drastically into the single digits and low 10s by tomorrow afternoon. Highs will bump up into the 20s on Friday. Lows in the upper single digits and 10s will occur overnight tonight before single digits and low 10s push in Thursday night. Upper 10s to mid 20s will settle in on Friday night. The DC Region will see partly sunny skies overall today before a chance of rain and snow move in later tonight and into tomorrow. Conditions will dry out on Friday as mostly sunny skies occur. Highs in the Upper 40s to low 50s today will drop into the mid 30s by tomorrow afternoon. Mid 30s will continue into Friday. Lows in the low to mid 30s overnight tonight will drop into the mid to upper 10s Thursday night before Friday night rise into the mid to upper 20s. Still a lot of uncertainty with the storm system Sunday/Monday. I will keep you updated. It’s hump day. Get over it! Take care folks!
