PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The warmest air since New Year’s Day has moved into western Pennsylvania.

KDKA meteorologist Dennis Bowman says temperatures are responding to a little bit of sunshine and a nice push of southerly winds.

Highs will range from mid- to upper-50s in the northern counties to the mid- and upper-60s in the southern portions of the viewing area.

In Pittsburgh, Bowman say to expect a high of 64 degrees, getting close to the standing record high of 68 from 1883.

The skies will cloud up tonight with lows near 50.

Then, on Friday, it will be warm again with a chance of scattered showers as a cold front makes its approach.

After a high near 60, temperatures will tumble Friday night and into Saturday. The temperature on Saturday will be near 40 degrees with very breezy conditions.
