Pittsburgh Weather: Warm Temperatures, Isolated Rain, and Chances of Storms


PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – We are starting the work week with a ridge of high pressure breaking down to our southeast.

Today: Warm day with a chance of thunderstorms/rain isolated due to the heating.

Alert: None likely for next week.

Aware: Two fronts loom next week. The first arrives on Tuesday morning and a secondary front passes through Friday. Saturday will not be a good pool day.

The center of rotation is located over North Carolina and is moving east. This will allow us to see our next cold front Tuesday morning.

The good news for us is that the front should pass during the cooler part of the day when instability is at its lowest.

While we’ll likely see a line of rain roll in around 7 a.m. Tuesday, heavy storms should stay away. Chances of rain will stay in place until at least 2pm this afternoon with another second round of rain possible as the coldest air arrives with the low settling in from 7pm to 10pm. We might even have a storm or two during this time.

For today the highs will be in the mid 80’s with southerly winds at 7-12 mph. Morning temperatures out the door will be in the low 50s and low 60s with midday temperatures in the upper 70s. We should see plenty of sunshine today with cloudy conditions after 7 tonight. I’m unlikely to get an isolated storm/rain today, but you’re unlikely to see any rain at this point. Any rain would be VERY isolated.

Looking ahead, the chance of severe weather remains at bay for the week, but there will be several minor chances of rain. The other decent chance of rain will come on Friday as another front slides into our area.

This cold front will bring the coolest weather of the week to start your weekend with Saturday highs forecast at just under 70°.

For the week, I have at least a chance of rain every day, but only one day has more than a 50% chance of rain and it happens on Tuesday.

Three days over the next week have only isolated chances of rain, including today.

The others are Thursday and Saturday.
