Following the thunderstorms that soaked the Pittsburgh area on Monday and Tuesday, drier weather will move in by Wednesday.

"Drenching showers and thunderstorms brought 1-2 inches of rain to the Pittsburgh area through Tuesday afternoon" AccuWeather.com Meteorologist Eric Leister said.

A final round of storms moved through the area Tuesday afternoon with only a few showers expected to linger though Tuesday night.

"Drier air will gradually push in by Wednesday morning as clouds break for some sunshine," Leister said.

High temperatures on Wednesday will be well below normal, only reaching the lower 70s with a gusty west-northwest wind.

Thursday will feature a mix of clouds and sun and there could even be a pop-up shower but most of the day will remain dry, he said.

Thursday will remain seasonably cool with high temperatures once again in the low 70s.

By the weekend, skies will clear making way for sunshine and warmer weather for outdoor activities.

"Friday and Saturday look very nice with partly sunny skies and highs reaching the upper 70s," he said.
