Play video AccuWeather.com's Evan Myers discusses the weather across the Northeast in the above AccuWeather.com video.

It will continue to feel like fall through at least Friday in the Pittsburgh area.

Highs will be held to the lower 70s again on Friday as a cool, Canadian high pressure system settles into the region. Such highs are more common in late September and roughly 10 degrees lower than normal for mid-August.

The chill will persist despite plenty of sunshine.

Some residents and visitors may opt for a long-sleeved shirt or light jacket at night as temperatures dip into the 40s at night.

Temperatures will rebound into the upper 70s to start the weekend, but humidity will remain comfortably low and dry weather will persist.

The return of higher humidity and thunderstorms is expected for Sunday.
