Weather in Pittsburgh: Partly cloudy weather and lower temperatures expected on Tuesday
PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Today and tomorrow cloudy skies and temperatures of the 70s.
Today: Partly cloudy in the afternoon. Maximum about 70.
Alert: Nothing for the next couple of days. The cold front is coming on Thursday.
In the course: Rains are possible on Thursday, Friday and Saturday next week.
The temperature yesterday was 62 degrees. It was cloudy all day, and surprisingly 0.01 inches of rain fell at Pittsburgh Airport. I’m not surprised they saw rain as it was in the forecast. I was just surprised it was raining. I’ve been further south during the day and outside most of the day and I don’t think I’ve seen enough to be measurable.
Today will be drier than yesterday, and warmer, a maximum of about 70 degrees. I lowered the highs of my forecast from where we were yesterday, and part of the reason for this is that the clouds stay in place during the morning hours and give way to variable cloudiness in the afternoon. I have an isolated chance of rain in the forecast for tonight, but almost everything today will be completely dry. Morning temperatures are close to what they were yesterday, and in Pittsburgh, according to forecasts, will drop by about 52 degrees. Yesterday we saw at least 50.
Wednesday will be similar to today’s, partly cloudy. I keep an isolated 20 percent chance of rain. Wednesday’s high should reach above 70s or at least be close if we don’t get there. The peak of possible rains on Thursday afternoon with the onset of the cold front in our region. The weather will persist until Friday and early Saturday, with possible rain and occasional thunderstorms.
Remembrance Day weekends look fantastic with highs around 80 degrees on Remembrance Day. The solemn day looks dry with a temperature of about 60 degrees.
