PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Grab the umbrella as rain showers are rolling through our area this morning. Rain chances peak at around 9:00 to 10:00 this morning in Allegheny and Westmoreland county as a cold front rolls through.

While I can’t rule out a rumble or two, we are really expecting mostly showers through the morning hours.

With a cool front being the trigger for the rain, temperatures will fall this afternoon. Winds will pick up, with gusts around 30 mph possible.
