Showers and a thunderstorm will continue to dampen Pittsburgh through Sunday before a more typical July week unfolds.

While it will not rain the entire weekend around the region, showers and spotty thunderstorms are in the offing through Sunday. Fans heading to the series with the Pirates and Rockies should grab some rain gear before heading to PNC Park.

Cloud cover will keep high temperatures a few degrees below normal this weekend.

Less rainfall and more sunshine is in store for the first part of the new week. While there will still be the risk of a shower or thunderstorm each day Monday through Wednesday, daytime temperatures will peak well into the 80s to near 90.

When combined with higher humidity, the weather will feel as it should be for the time of year.

A more active Thursday should unfold as a cold front slices into the steamy air, followed by the return of more comfortable air on Friday.
