Cool Temperatures, Blustery Conditions In Forecast

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Cool temperatures, gusty winds and a sprinkle or two will make for a blustery Thursday across the Pittsburgh area.

KDKA meteorologist Dennis Bowman says southwest winds will gust at 15 to 35 miles per hour at times today, which will be a nuisance for high profile vehicles.

No doubt, trash cans will blow down the street and porch furniture will be overturned. Bowman says temperatures will be consistently in the mid- to upper-40s throughout the day.

“It’s a pretty strong low pressure system, a deep low that is affecting the Ohio Valley, soaking rain staying well to our north and northwest while we’ll catch a sprinkle from time to time and also get those gusty winds going,” Bowman said.

He says tonight will be mostly cloudy with a shower or two in spots and a low of 39. We could actually see a mix of rain and snow in the Laurel Highlands late tonight.

As for Friday, there will be mostly cloudy skies with a shower still possible and a high of 52. But skies should brighten up for the weekend with afternoon readings in the mid-50s both days.
