PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — It’s a dry and pleasant day with plenty of sunshine.

In the near term, KDKA Meteorologist Ron Smiley has bumped up temperatures a couple of degrees.

We hit 82 degrees yesterday for a high. The lack of rain and the earlier than expected sunshine helped push temps well past the forecast highs.
