PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — We are starting off this morning mild and muggy.
This afternoon, highs will get to the upper 80’s and we have increasing humidity.
Today is the better chance of the past several days we’ve had for stray showers and storms to pop up this afternoon. The NWS issued a flash flood warning for parts of Allegheny County until 8 p.m.
Isolated to scattered thunderstorms are expected this afternoon and evening as a weak upper level trough passes over the area.

Convection would generally diminish overnight but we still have the chance for showers and storms tonight with lows in the upper 60’s.
Tomorrow, more sunshine and dry conditions move in with highs in the upper 80’s, then by next week we are right at 90 for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and some areas may get a little bit hotter than that.
More much needed rain is expected Tuesday through Friday.
