    Pittsburgh: Another Cooldown to Follow Midweek Storms

    Just when it was starting to feel like the dog days of summer again, another push of cool air is taking aim on the Pittsburgh area.

    After a typical midsummer day with very warm and humid conditions, the leading edge of the cooler air will set off locally strong thunderstorms from Wednesday afternoon into early Wednesday evening.

    In the wake of a front moving in from the Midwest, high temperatures will range from the 70s to the lower 80s during the latter part of the week. The weather will still be warm enough for swimming and most outdoor plans. The lower temperatures will provide another break for those without air conditioning.

    Another round of showers and thunderstorms may follow Sunday into Monday as a reinforcing push of cool air moves in for the last few days of July.

    After a winter with above-average heating bills from the Midwest to the Northeast, the weather will continue to work toward keeping cooling costs down through the end of July.
