After cooler temperatures from the Midwest gripped Pittsburgh, warmer weather will be on the rebound over the weekend for the area.

After overnight temperatures challenged record lows in the 50s for unseasonably chilly evenings, nighttime temperatures will rise back to the mid-60s.

Skies should be mostly sunny until the threat of thunderstorms pops up over the weekend.

As temperatures pull higher, the area should see highs closer to summer averages as the weekend develops. Typical highs are in the middle 80s during mid-July.

As humidity levels rise this weekend, the risk of popup thunderstorms will increase.
