KDKA Chief Meteorologist Jeff Verszyla says “the main theme moving forward is going to be for less in the way of rain [and] more in the way of cooler temperatures.”
He says scattered showers will continue overnight and breezy and cooler conditions will move in for the beginning of the weekend.
“Overall, the trend will be for lighter showers and to become more scattered out overnight,” said Verszyla. “Flash Flood Watch is still in effect; although, I do think that potential is going to become less likely as we’re getting these bigger lulls in the activity. Breezy and turning cooler [Friday], still a few showers around.”
As for Saturday, Verszyla says conditions will be brisk and chilly.MORE NEWS: COVID-19 In Ohio: Fraudulent Claims Overwhelm Pandemic-Related Unemployment Programs
