Spotty Showers, Storms Moving Through Area
PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The weather remains unsettled across the area as spotty showers and storms will continue to move through over the next couple of days.
Heavy afternoon and evening rains on Friday left behind flooded basements, backyards and roads, leaving many people cleaning up Saturday.
As those cleanup efforts continue, those pop-up showers continue to roll through.
“Showers, scattered storms – sort of popcorn variety,” said KDKA’s Jon Burnett. “Watch these storms sort of bubble up and appear as we got into the heating of the day, and now that things are starting to cool and quiet down again heading toward the midnight hour, you can see the activity dying out, and it will end altogether I believe in the next hour or so, go completely quiet overnight and then regenerate again tomorrow as we start to heat up in the late morning and early afternoon .”
And Sunday’s forecast is shaping up to be much like Saturday’s.
“There’ll be periods of sunshine, there’ll be periods of showers popping up and then dying down and moving right along,” Burnett said.
But he warns people living in flood-prone areas to be careful and prepared if a shower or storm moves through.
As for the upcoming week, Burnett says don’t expect much to change.
“Not much change as we head into Monday, Tuesday,” said Burnett. “This stationary frontal boundary just hangs out there and serves as a conveyor belt for disturbances that will keep the atmosphere unsettled and keep the threat of flooding in place at least through the middle to latter part of next week.”
