Pittsburgh: Downpours to Depart by the Weekend

A dry weekend will follow the midweek's unsettled weather around Pittsburgh.

Warm and humid air that moved in recently will be slow to leave, despite an impressive push of cool air farther to the east over the mid-Atlantic.

Late in the week the moisture will be squeezed to the south and west as cooler air mixes in from the north and east.

The result will be a reduction in not only shower activity, but also lower humidity levels that should carry through the coming weekend.
