Heavy Rain Expected This Weekend
PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – After dealing with flooding around the area earlier this week, more rain is coming over the weekend.
According to Meteorologist Dennis Bowman, there will be some periods of light sprinkles as temperatures will rise to near 50 degrees on Friday.
Any precipitation will be light rain and drizzle into Saturday morning.
However, Saturday afternoon and evening the rain is expected to get heavy. An inch or two could be seen across the area by Sunday morning.
This will be enough to aggravate the flood situation for area creeks, streams and rivers. A Flood Watch takes effect for the entire viewing area on Saturday morning and will run through Sunday. This means flooding and flash flooding will be possible.
As a cold front crosses the area on Sunday, temperatures will fall, changing any leftover rain to light snow. However, no accumulation is expected.
Saturday’s high will be in the 50s, while Sunday’s high will be 39 degrees in the morning.
