PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – While much of the area enjoyed gorgeous weather on Monday, it was a much different tale today.

A Severe Thunderstorm Watch remains in effect for just Fayette and Westmoreland counties until 9 p.m.; but earlier in the day, much of southwestern Pennsylvania was under the watch.

According to KDKA-TV Meteorologist Ron Smiley, two rounds of rain came through today.

The first arrived early this morning and brought mostly rain with a few rumbles of thunder as it moved through.

The second round of rain will begin this afternoon along and just north of Interstate 80 and slowly movef south.

The best chance for any severe weather today was south of Pittsburgh. Chief Meteorologist Jeff Verszyla says the lingering threat of severe weather would pass by our area by 7 p.m.

Wednesday will be dry, but more rain will be expected on Thursday and Sunday.

Highs today should be near 70 degrees.
