Erie will see the best chance of accumulating snow Friday night into Saturday. Highs will rise into the 60s today in western PA before afternoon highs drop into the mid 50s to low 60s on Friday. Highs will continue to decline on Saturday as 40s settle in. Lows will drop into the upper 40s to mid 50s tonight before mid 30s to low 40s settle in on Friday night. Saturday night will bring lows in the low to mid 30s to western PA. The DC Region will see highs in the upper 60s to mid 70s today before low to mid 70s track in on Friday and mid 50s to low 60s settle in on Saturday. Lows will drop into the upper 50s to mid 60s tonight before upper 40s to low 50s settle in on Friday night and mid to upper 30s push in on Saturday night. Things stay cool into Sunday before another warm up takes place through much of next week. Hope you all have a terrific Thursday! Take care folks!
