Frost and freeze are a concern the next few nights. Make sure to cover any tender flowers and plants outdoors through Wednesday morning. After that, we should be able to get those flowers and patio sets ready to go for the season.
After a dreary, chilly Sunday, we are back to sunshine and dry conditions. The good news is that the dry trend will stick around most of the week.READ MORE: Live Winter Storm Tracker: Pittsburgh Area Digs Out After Heavy Snowfall Blankets Region
The even better news is that our temperatures have already rebounded to warmer than Sunday — which saw a high of only 43. We’re on our way to the upper 50s and then into the 60s starting Wednesday. We’ll make a run at 70 by the weekend and next week looks more seasonably pleasant for mid-May in the 70s.
We could see a sprinkle in spots later Tuesday, but we don’t really have much of a shower chance until possibly a few on Friday and Sunday.MORE NEWS: Gov. Jim Justice Resumes Briefings, Says COVID-19 Is ‘Tough Stuff’
