PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Another round of wet, severe weather is in the forecast once again with the potential for thunderstorms this afternoon, but clearing later tonight.
According to KDKA meteorologist Dennis Bowman, showers will be most active this morning in the eastern counties, but we’ll all see at least some rain.
A few thunderstorms are likely this afternoon, some with hail and briefly heavy rain.
For the month, Bowman says we have had 4.00 inches of rain, which is 1.85 above normal. For the year, we are at 21.50, which is a whopping 8.14 above average.
Today’s high under gray skies will be 67 degrees. Then, the storms shut down tonight with a low of 53 degrees.
On Friday, the pattern repeats itself with a mix of sun and clouds and scattered thunderstorms. The high will be near 70.
Then, we will have a dry day on Saturday with partly sunny skies and a high of 78 degrees.
Bowman say scattered storms are possible by late in the day Sunday; otherwise, there will be some sun with a high of 82 degrees.
It looks like we return to daily doses of showers and thunderstorms next week.
Of course, June is right around the corner, which tends to be an active month for rain. Does the Three Rivers Arts Festival ring a bell?
Keep the rain gear handy and watch the forecast closely to take advantage of breaks of fair weather.
