What is this feeling? I don’t shiver as soon as I walk outside. I feel comfortable!

Yes it will be a comfortable day as some enjoyable temperatures move in for today. Highs in the 40s are expected from western PA into the DC region today. This pattern will cool off a bit on Saturday in western PA as a chance of light rubbish moves into the region. Warmer temperatures will hold steady through early next week before another shot of below normal temperatures moves in. Luckily, normals keep getting warmer, so below normal won’t be  as cold as we saw a few weeks ago. Have a fantastic weekend and get outside today!
