Multiple Severe Thunderstorm Warnings were issued across the Pittsburgh area Friday evening.
There’s a marginal risk of severe weather Friday. Strong winds along with downpours and frequent lightning are the main concerns for the day.
Meteorologist Ron Smiley says storms will come in two types today with both singular cells and weak lines possible. Storm chances peak between 2 p.m. to 7 p.m., but we could see some storms and rain outside of that window, including the possibility of overnight rain and storms.
The best chance for rain over a calendar day occurs on Saturday with rain both in the morning and afternoon expected. Saturday highs will be in the low 80s thanks to the increased rain chance and by the end of the afternoon, cooler air will be rolling in from the northwest.
You’ll feel the difference on Sunday and even on Monday with dew points lower. Sunday should be completely dry with just an isolated storm and rain chance on Monday.
