TONIGHT: Scattered Showers, A Possible Storm After 9p. Lo 53. Winds: SE 10-15 mph. Gusts to 25 mph.
WEDNESDAY: AM Showers, Stray PM Showers. Hi 75.
THURSDAY: Mostly Sunny, Pleasant. Hi 72.
Strong storms have developed near Pittsburgh along a warm front this evening. The air mass over central PA is stable, so we don’t expect severe weather locally. However, the leftovers of this complex of storms will move in after 9p, and may bring briefly heavy rain and perhaps a few rumbles of thunder. We’ll see off and on showers overnight as we await the passage of a cold front. It will be mild with lows dropping into the low to mid 50s.
We’ll see a few showers Wednesday morning with a stray shower or storm during the afternoon as we begin to clear out. Drier air moves in Wednesday evening, which will set the stage for a pleasant Thursday.
After drying out Thursday, periods of rain will move in for Friday and Saturday as another slow-moving area of low pressure sets up nearby. Total rainfall could amount to a half-inch or as much as an inch. Both days will be damp and cool with highs in the 50s and 60s. The latest trends suggest the upper-level low should move south and east of our area for Mother’s Day itself, so Sunday appears dryer (for now!) with gradual clearing and temperatures in the 60s. So it may not be a perfect Mother’s Day, but it’s looking mainly dry at least. We will continue to follow the trends and keep you posted! Nice weather awaits us early next week with abundant sunshine and moderating temperatures each day.
