CWS Forecast: Ridge and Valley Region                                        

Today will bring pleasant conditions for all of the Commonwealth with clear skies and temperatures continuing to linger in the upper 70s. This will be short lived, however, as a cold front moves into the area on today, bringing increasing clouds and a chance for afternoon thunderstorms, especially in the West and South. Some of these storms can hold the potential to be strong with heavy downpours. This trend will continue into Friday with showers likely during the day mainly for areas south of I-80. Saturday will begin to dry out, but leave lingering clouds for most of the day. These will move out of the area giving way to a mostly clear day for Sunday. Many will experience a crisp fall-like feel Saturday and into Sunday with temperatures in the lower 70s, and overnight lows in the upper 40s for some.
