PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – While spring brought an almost endless amount of rain, Mother Nature is about to turn up the heat this week.

Temperatures are expected to soar into the 90s over four of the next five days. According to KDKA-TV’s Jon Burnett, the lone reprieve will be on Tuesday, when the high will be around 88 degrees.

On Monday, a cool front is expected to set off some rain showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon.

Some of these storms could be powerful and could produce hail, lightning, high winds and heavy downpours.

Monday’s high is expected to be 90 degrees with an overnight low of 70 degrees.

Temperatures are expected to climb into the mid-90s by the end of the work week.

The forecasted temperatures have prompted the city to open the Homewood Healthy-Active Living Center.

The cooling center will be open from 8 a.m. until 7 p.m. through Wednesday for elderly residents.

Activities for senior citizens will be provided along with refreshments.
