While Pittsburgh will start the weekend on a mild note, even warmer air is expected for Easter Sunday.

Rain will remain absent from Pittsburgh through Easter weekend, allowing Easter egg hunts and other festivities to go on as planned.

Baseball fans will not have to worry about the Pirates' series between the Milwaukee Brewers being disrupted by the weather.

Saturday will feature a near repeat of Friday's high before the arrival of even warmer air boosts temperatures to the lower 70s on Easter Sunday.

Residents and visitors will still want to wear jackets to Easter sunrise services with temperatures set to drop into the 30s early Sunday morning.
