The expansive ridge of high pressure extending across the central
and northern Appalachians will bring us a pleasantly warm day 
with comfortable humidity. High temperatures this afternoon will 
range from the upper 70s over the higher elevations, to the mid 
80s near the Maryland border.

Mid level clouds will increase from the west tonight into 
Thursday. Lows tonight will be in the upper 50s to mid 60s. 

A cold front will push gradually southeast across the district 
late Thursday night through Friday morning with numerous showers 
and isolated to scattered thunderstorms.

Another wave or two low pressure will likely form along this
front as it sags to the southern border of the state, bringing
some additional periods of rain Friday afternoon into Saturday
morning, mainly across the southern portion of Pennsylvania.
