PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Rain showers and an isolated storm are expected to roll through Western Pennsylvania tonight ahead of an overnight cold front.
KDKA Meteorologist Ron Smiley says rain totals won’t be that impressive, with most people seeing between a quarter to a half inch of rain.
The only real concern as the front blows through will be gusty winds. Smiley says wind gusts could potentially top 35 miles per hour.
The front should slide through Pittsburgh around 2 a.m.
Friday will be cooler with the day’s high temperature, 64 degrees, reached at midnight.
Temperatures should be near 50 degrees by 8 a.m. Friday morning, and we should see mid-40s for afternoon temperatures.
We expect to be overcast with some light drizzle possible through Friday afternoon, with clearing skies before sunset.
Clear skies heading into the weekend will allow temperatures to plummet to below 30 degrees for Saturday morning.
After that though, temperatures will rebound nicely with highs in the low 60s on Saturday and near 70 degrees on Easter.
We do have a chance for a late-day Easter Sunday shower as another cool front slides through.
