So far this month the Pittsburgh average temperature is running 3.9° above average. That’s the warmest start to the month of December since 2015 and the third-warmest start to December over the last decade.

Overall it is just the 31st warmest start to December over the last 150 years.

High but not extremely so.

I have noon temperatures hitting the low 60s.

Heading into the weekend, rain arrives again Friday evening, sticking around through most of the day on Saturday. Rain totals should be around a half-inch to three-quarters of an inch.

Saturday should be your classic rainy day as a warm front stalls on top of our region followed by the center of a mid-level low along with the cold front moving through around sunset.

Sunday should be cooler, with some light snow possible in spots.
